Official Full Name
nuclear cap binding protein subunit 2, 20kDa
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 has an RNP domain commonly found in RNA binding proteins, and contains the cap-binding activity. The CBC promotes pre-mRNA splicing, 3-end processing, RNA nuclear export, and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
