RNA-binding proteins

Sunday 30 November 2003


RNA-binding proteins are involved in various aspects of RNA metabolism such as processing, translational control, stabilization, localization and transport.

Many of these proteins bind several RNA targets and have multiple functions.


- RNA transport
- RNA localization
- RNA metabolism
- RNA splicing
