MeSH Heading
Polypyrimidine Tract-Binding Protein
Tree Number(s)

D12.776.664.962.829.250
Unique ID
D038941
RDF Unique Identifier

Scope Note
A RNA-binding protein that binds to polypyriminidine rich regions in the INTRONS of messenger RNAs. Polypyrimidine tract-binding protein may be involved in regulating the ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of mRNAs since its presence on an intronic RNA region that is upstream of an EXON inhibits the splicing of the exon into the final mRNA product.
