  • FunctionPoly(A) polymerase that creates the 3'-poly(A) tail of specific pre-mRNAs. Localizes to nuclear speckles together with PIP5K1A and mediates polyadenylation of a select set of mRNAs, such as HMOX1. In addition to polyadenylation, it is also required for the 3'-end cleavage of pre-mRNAs: binds to the 3'UTR of targeted pre-mRNAs and promotes the recruitment and assembly of the CPSF complex on the 3'UTR of pre-mRNAs. In addition to adenylyltransferase activity, also has uridylyltransferase activity. However, the ATP ratio is higher than UTP in cells, suggesting that it functions primarily as a poly(A) polymerase. Acts as a specific terminal uridylyltransferase for U6 snRNA in vitro: responsible for a controlled elongation reaction that results in the restoration of the four 3'-terminal UMP-residues found in newly transcribed U6 snRNA. Not involved in replication-dependent histone mRNA degradation.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DNA polymerase type-B-like family.
    Contains 1 C2H2-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 PAP-associated domain.
    Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by CK1 in the proline-rich (Pro-rich) region. Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
