Y-box-binding protein 2

Gene

Ybx2

Organism
Mus musculus (Mouse)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Major constituent of messenger ribonucleoprotein particles (mRNPs). Involved in the regulation of the stability and/or translation of germ cell mRNAs. Binds to Y-box consensus promoter element. Binds to full-length mRNA with high affinity in a sequence-independent manner. Binds to short RNA sequences containing the consensus site 5'-UCCAUCA-3' with low affinity and limited sequence specificity. Its binding with maternal mRNAs is necessary for its cytoplasmic retention. May mark specific mRNAs (those transcribed from Y-box promoters) in the nucleus for cytoplasmic storage, thereby linking transcription and mRNA storage/translational delay.5 Publications

Miscellaneous

Knockout mice for this gene exhibited reduced level of mRNA and protein synthesis in fully grown oocytes and decrease fertility.

Post-translational modificationi

Phosphorylated during oocyte maturation and dephosphorylated following egg activation. Phosphorylated in vitro by a kinase activity associated with testicular mRNPs. Dephosphorylation leads to a decrease in its affinity to bind RNA in vitro.2 Publications
