|Other Accession||Q5E9A3, P60335, O19048|
|Calculated MW||H=37,M=37 KDa|
|Other Names||Poly(rC)-binding protein 1, Alpha-CP1, Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein E1, hnRNP E1, Nucleic acid-binding protein SUB23, PCBP1|
|Target/Specificity||This PCBP1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 188-217 amino acids from the Central region of human PCBP1.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||PCBP1 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Single-stranded nucleic acid binding protein that binds preferentially to oligo dC. In case of infection by poliovirus, plays a role in initiation of viral RNA replication in concert with the viral protein 3CD (PubMed:12414943).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Loosely bound in the nucleus. May shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Abundantly expressed in skeletal muscle, thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes while a lower expression is observed in prostate, spleen, testis, ovary, small intestine, heart, liver, adrenal and thyroid glands|

This intronless gene is thought to have been generated by retrotransposition of a fully processed PCBP-2 mRNA. This gene and PCBP-2 have paralogues (PCBP3 and PCBP4) which are thought to have arisen as a result of duplication events of entire genes. The protein encoded by this gene appears to be multifunctional. It along with PCBP-2 and hnRNPK corresponds to the major cellular poly(rC)-binding protein. It contains three K-homologous (KH) domains which may be involved in RNA binding. This encoded protein together with PCBP-2 also functions as translational coactivators of poliovirus RNA via a sequence-specific interaction with stem-loop IV of the IRES and promote poliovirus RNA replication by binding to its 5'-terminal cloverleaf structure. It has also been implicated in translational control of the 15-lipoxygenase mRNA, human Papillomavirus type 16 L2 mRNA, and hepatitis A virus RNA. The encoded protein is also suggested to play a part in formation of a sequence-specific alpha-globin mRNP complex which is associated with alpha-globin mRNA stability.
