    • Function
      Component of the microprocessor complex that acts as a RNA- and heme-binding protein that is involved in the initial step of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis. Component of the microprocessor complex that is required to process primary miRNA transcripts (pri-miRNAs) to release precursor miRNA (pre-miRNA) in the nucleus. Within the microprocessor complex, DGCR8 function as a molecular anchor necessary for the recognition of pri-miRNA at dsRNA-ssRNA junction and directs DROSHA to cleave 11 bp away form the junction to release hairpin-shaped pre-miRNAs that are subsequently cut by the cytoplasmic DICER to generate mature miRNAs. The heme-bound DGCR8 dimer binds pri-miRNAs as a cooperative trimer (of dimers) and is active in triggering pri-miRNA cleavage, whereas the heme-free DGCR8 monomer binds pri-miRNAs as a dimer and is much less active. Both double-stranded and single-stranded regions of a pri-miRNA are required for its binding. Involved in the silencing of embryonic stem cells self-renewal.
    • Tissue specificity
      Ubiquitously expressed.
    • Sequence similarities
      Contains 2 DRBM (double-stranded RNA-binding) domains.
      Contains 1 WW domain.
    • Domain
      Both DRBM domains are required for efficient binding to pri-miRNA. The region between residues 276 and 498 has an autoinhibitory function on pri-miRNA processing activity.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus. Nucleus > nucleolus. Colocalizes with nucleolin and DROSHA in the nucleolus. Mostly detected in the nucleolus as electron-dense granular patches around the fibrillar center (FC) and granular component (GC). Also detected in the nucleoplasm as small foci adjacent to splicing speckles near the chromatin structure. Localized with DROSHA in GW bodies (GWBs), also known as P-bodies.

    • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human ovarian carcinoma tissue labelling DGCR8 with ab90649 at 1/1000 (1µg/ml). Detection: DAB.
    • Detection of Human DGCR8 in Immunoprecipitates of HeLa whole cell lysate (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded) using ab90649 at 3 µg/mg lysate for IP (Lane 1). Lane 2 represents control IgG IP.
      ab90579, which recognizes an upstream epitope, was used at 1 µg/ml for subsequent WB detection.
      Detection: Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 30 seconds.
