GeneCards Summary for ESRP1 Gene
ESRP1 (Epithelial Splicing Regulatory Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and mRNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ESRP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ESRP1 Gene
mRNA splicing factor that regulates the formation of epithelial cell-specific isoforms. Specifically regulates the expression of FGFR2-IIIb, an epithelial cell-specific isoform of FGFR2. Also regulates the splicing of CD44, CTNND1, ENAH, 3 transcripts that undergo changes in splicing during the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Acts by directly binding specific sequences in mRNAs. Binds the GU-rich sequence motifs in the ISE/ISS-3, a cis-element regulatory region present in the mRNA of FGFR2.
