Human Gene PABPC1 (uc003yju.2) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens poly(A) binding protein, cytoplasmic 1 (PABPC1), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_002568): This gene encodes a poly(A) binding protein. The protein shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm and binds to the 3' poly(A) tail of eukaryotic messenger RNAs via RNA-recognition motifs. The binding of this protein to poly(A) promotes ribosome recruitment and translation initiation; it is also required for poly(A) shortening which is the first step in mRNA decay. The gene is part of a small gene family including three protein-coding genes and several pseudogenes.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010].
