This gene encodes an RNA-binding phosphoprotein that is part of the MEX3 (muscle excess 3) family of translational regulators. The encoded protein contains N-terminal nuclear export and nuclear localization signals and is exported from the cytoplasm to the nucleus. The protein binds to RNA via two KH domains and also colocalizes with MEX3A, Dcp1A decapping factor and Argonaute ... See more...

Entrez Gene Summary for MEX3B Gene

  • This gene encodes an RNA-binding phosphoprotein that is part of the MEX3 (muscle excess 3) family of translational regulators. The encoded protein contains N-terminal nuclear export and nuclear localization signals and is exported from the cytoplasm to the nucleus. The protein binds to RNA via two KH domains and also colocalizes with MEX3A, Dcp1A decapping factor and Argonaute proteins within P (processing) bodies. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2012]
