FunctionOne of the major pre-mRNA-binding proteins. Binds tenaciously to poly(C) sequences. Likely to play a role in the nuclear metabolism of hnRNAs, particularly for pre-mRNAs that contain cytidine-rich sequences. Can also bind poly(C) single-stranded DNA.
Sequence similaritiesContains 3 KH domains.
Post-translational modificationsArg-296 and Arg-299 are dimethylated, probably to asymmetric dimethylarginine.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus > nucleoplasm. In case of ASFV infection, there is a shift in the localization which becomes predominantly nuclear.
