Polyadenylate-binding protein 2 - Q86U42 (PABP2_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Involved in the 3'-end formation of mRNA precursors (pre-mRNA) by the addition of a poly(A) tail of 200-250 nt to the upstream cleavage product (By similarity). Stimulates poly(A) polymerase (PAPOLA) conferring processivity on the poly(A) tail elongation reaction and controls also the poly(A) tail length (By similarity). Increases the affinity of poly(A) polymerase for RNA (By similarity). Is also present at various stages of mRNA metabolism including nucleocytoplasmic trafficking and nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) of mRNA. Cooperates with SKIP to synergistically activate E-box-mediated transcription through MYOD1 and may regulate the expression of muscle-specific genes (PubMed:11371506). Binds to poly(A) and to poly(G) with high affinity (By similarity). May protect the poly(A) tail from degradation (By similarity). Subunit of the trimeric poly(A) tail exosome targeting (PAXT) complex, a complex that directs a subset of long and polyadenylated poly(A) RNAs for exosomal degradation. The RNA exosome is fundamental for the degradation of RNA in eukaryotic nuclei. Substrate targeting is facilitated by its cofactor MTREX, which links to RNA-binding protein adapters (PubMed:27871484). UniProt

Subunit Structure
May interact with SETX (PubMed:21700224). Monomer and homooligomer. Binds RNA as a monomer and oligomerizes when bound to poly(A). Interacts with PAPOLA, but only in presence of oligo(A) RNA. Interacts with transportin. Identified in a IGF2BP1-dependent mRNP granule complex containing untranslated mRNAs. Association in a ternary complex with CPSF4 and influenza A virus NS1 blocks pre-mRNAs processing, thereby preventing nuclear export of host cell mRNAs. Associates in a single complex with SKIP and MYOD1 and interacts with SKIP in differentiated myocytes. Interacts with NUDT21/CPSF5. Interacts (via RRM domain and C-terminal arginine-rich region) with ZFP36 (via hypophosphorylated form); this interaction occurs in the nucleus in a RNA-independent manner, decreases in presence of single-stranded poly(A) RNA-oligomer and in a p38-dependent-manner and may down-regulated RNA poly(A) polymerase activity (By similarity). Component of the poly(A) tail exosome targeting (PAXT) complex made of accessory factors, such as PABPN1, ZFC3H1 and MTREX (PubMed:27871484). Interacts with ZFC3H1 in a RNase-insensitive manner (PubMed:27871484). UniProt
The RRM domain is essential for specific adenine bases recognition in the poly(A) tail but not sufficient for poly(A) binding. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
