TTP a CCCH zinc finger protein that has anti-inflammatory and arthritis suppressor activity. Regulates inflammatory responses at the post-transcriptional level. TTP deficiency in mice causes a severe inflammatory syndrome that includes autoimmunity, myeloid hyperplasia, and erosive arthritis. Binds to and destabilizes mRNA molecules with AU-rich elements (AREs). Has a high affinity for UUAUUUAUU mRNA sequences. Destabilizes tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF??), interleukin 2 (IL2), granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), transcription factor E47, and cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2) mRNAs. TNF?? and GM-CSF mRNAs are stabilized in TTP-deficient mice, causing a severe inflammatory syndrome. Conversely, high levels of TTP reduce inflammatory responses. TTP is a very low abundance protein that is rapidly induced by insulin, glucocorticoids, lipopolysaccharide (LPS), fetal calf serum, zinc, herpes simplex virus 1, green tea, and cinnamon. Once induced, the TTP protein is relatively stable. Has been experimentaly shown to be able to bind zinc. TTP is extensively phosphorylated.
