CIRBP Cold-inducible mRNA binding protein that plays a protective role in the genotoxic stress response by stabilizing transcripts of genes involved in cell survival. Acts as a translational activator. Seems to play an essential role in cold-induced suppression of cell proliferation. Binds specifically to the 3'-untranslated regions (3'-UTRs) of stress-responsive transcripts RPA2 and TXN. Acts as a translational repressor. Promotes assembly of stress granules (SGs), when overexpressed. Ubiquitous. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
