Post-translational modifications for ELAVL4 Gene

  • Methylation at Arg-243 by CARM1 weakens protective binding to the 3-UTR of CDKN1A mRNA and down-regulates CDKN1A protein expression, thereby maintaining cells in a proliferative state. Methylation is inhibited by NGF, which facilitates neurite outgrowth (By similarity).
  • Ubiquitination at Lys81, Lys102, and Lys118
