Functioni

'Translational enhancer' that drives specific mRNAs to polysomes and increases the efficiency of protein synthesis. Its association with the translational machinery and target mRNAs results in an increased number of initiation events per molecule of mRNA and, indirectly, in mRNA stabilization. Binds IGF2 mRNA, MYOD1 mRNA, ARBP/36B4 ribosomal protein mRNA and its own mRNA. Essential for skeletal muscle differentiation program through the translational up-regulation of IGF2 expression. Suppressor of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis, including that of let-7, miR107, miR-143 and miR-200c. Specifically binds the miRNA precursors (pre-miRNAs), recognizing an 5'-GGAG-3' motif found in pre-miRNA terminal loop, and recruits ZCCHC11/TUT4 uridylyltransferase. This results in the terminal uridylation of target pre-miRNAs. Uridylated pre-miRNAs fail to be processed by Dicer and undergo degradation. The repression of let-7 expression is required for normal development and contributes to maintain the pluripotent state by preventing let-7-mediated differentiation of embryonic stem cells (PubMed:19703396).5 Publications

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed in embryonic stem cells (ES cells), spermatagonia and testis. Expressed in numerous epithelial tissues including the epithelia of the small intestine, the intralobular duct epithelium of the mammary gland and the epithelia of Henle's loop in the kidney and in the collecting duct (at protein level). Also expressed in the myocardium and skeletal muscle (at protein level).4 Publications

Developmental stagei

Strongly expressed throughout the whole embryo at 6.5 dpc, including the embryonic and extraembryonic ectoderm and endoderm (at protein level). Subsequently expressed in the ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm at 7.5 dpc (at protein level). At 9.5 dpc, expressed in epithelia covering the first branchial arch and the coelomic cavity, the myocardium of the developing heart, the neuroepithelium and some extraembryonic tissues such as the visceral yolk sac (at protein level). Expression persists in a variety of epithelial tissues at 10.5 dpc. At 15.5 dpc, expression is lost in bronchial epithelium and becomes weaker in neuroepithelium, while increasing in the myotome of somites, the foregut epithelium, stratified epithelium and some kidney tubules (at protein level). At 17.5 dpc, expression persists in the myocardium and in the epithelium covering the body surface and skeletal muscles (at protein level). Expression is reduced during differentiation of ES cells. In adult primary myoblasts, barely detectable during proliferation, but dramatically up-regulated during terminal differentiation. Induced as early as 24 hours after differentiation signal and remains high as late as 7 days of differentiation. Little expression in resting muscle, but strongly up-regulated during regeneration of skeletal muscle fibers. Expression decreases when regeneration is histologically and functionally complete.4 Publications

Inductioni

Negatively regulated by the microRNA miR-125b in response to retinoic acid.2 Publications

Domaini

The CSD domain is required for function in muscle differentiation.1 Publication
The CCHC zinc fingers interact with the GGAG motif at the 3' end of let-7 miRNAs precursors, more generally they bind the 5'-NGNNG-3' consensus motif with micromolar affinity. The CSD domain recognizes the loop at the 5' end. The flexible linker allows accommodating variable sequences and lengths among let-7 family members.1 Publication
