CPEB1 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB6644) staining (0.5 ug/mL) of human brain lysate (RIPA buffer, 35 ug total protein per lane). Primary incubated for 1 hour. Detected by western blot using chemiluminescence.
This gene encodes a member of the cytoplasmic polyadenylation element (CPE) binding protein family. This highly conserved protein binds to a specific RNA sequence called the CPE found in the 3' UTR of some mRNAs. Similar proteins in Xenopus and mouse function to induce cytoplasmic polyadenylation of dormant mRNAs with short polyA tails, resulting in their translation. Members of this protein family regulate translation of cyclin B1 during embryonic cell divisions. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
