Official Full Name
nuclear cap binding protein subunit 1, 80kDa
The product of this gene is a component of the nuclear cap-binding protein complex (CBC), which binds to the monomethylated 5 cap of nascent pre-mRNA in the nucleoplasm. The encoded protein promotes high-affinity mRNA-cap binding and associates with the CTD of RNA polymerase II. The CBC promotes pre-mRNA splicing, 3-end processing, RNA nuclear export, and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay.
