FunctionBinds to the 5'-UTR of the insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) mRNAs. Binding is isoform-specific. May regulate translation of target mRNAs.
Tissue specificityExpressed in oocytes, granulosa cells of small and growing follicles, Leydig cells, spermatogonia and semen (at protein level). Expressed in testicular cancer (at protein level). Expressed weakly in heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, bone marrow, colon, kidney, salivary glands, testis and pancreas. Detected in fetal liver, fetal ovary, gonocytes and interstitial cells of the testis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the RRM IMP/VICKZ family. Contains 4 KH domains. Contains 2 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domains.
DomainThe third and fourth KH domains are important for binding to the untranslated region (UTR) of target mRNA.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs. Localizes at the connecting piece and the tail of the spermatozoa.
