Cold-inducible mRNA binding protein that enhances global protein synthesis at both physiological and mild hypothermic temperatures. Reduces the relative abundance of microRNAs, when overexpressed. Enhances phosphoryaltion of translation initiation factors and active polysome formation.
Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
Arg-105 is dimethylated, probably to asymmetric dimethylarginine. Phosphorylated.
Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cell projection > dendrite. Localizes in mRNA granules in dentrites.
