    Protein attributes for G3BP2 Gene

    482 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    54121 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Forms homooligomers (PubMed:23279204). Forms heterodimers with G3BP1 (PubMed:23279204). Interacts with NFKBIA (via N-terminus) (PubMed:10969074). Interacts with USP10 (PubMed:23279204). Interacts with PABPC1 (PubMed:23279204).
    • (Microbial infection) Interacts with Sindbis virus non-structural protein 3 (via C-terminus); this interaction inhibits the formation of host stress granules on viral mRNAs and the nsp3-G3BP2 complexes bind viral RNAs and probably orchestrate the assembly of viral replication complexes.
