The protein encoded by this gene binds RNA and is a regulator of cell differentiation. The encoded protein preferentially binds to poly(G) and poly(U) sequences in vitro. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]
GeneCards Summary for PTBP3 Gene
PTBP3 (Polypyrimidine Tract Binding Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PTBP3 include Prune Belly Syndrome and Frontometaphyseal Dysplasia.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PTBP3 Gene
RNA-binding protein that mediates pre-mRNA alternative splicing regulation. Plays a role in the regulation of cell proliferation, differentiation and migration. Positive regulator of EPO-dependent erythropoiesis. Participates in cell differentiation regulation by repressing tissue-specific exons. Promotes FAS exon 6 skipping. Binds RNA, preferentially to both poly(G) and poly(U).
