Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0006477
UniProt IDO60828
Primary gene name(s)PQBP1
Synonym gene name(s)NPW38
Protein namePolyglutamine-binding protein 1
Protein functionProbably functions as scaffold protein that is part of numerous complexes and thereby plays a role in pre-mRNA splicing, transcription regulation and neuron development. Required for normal alternative splicing of target pre-mRNA species, PubMed:23512658. May suppress the ability of POU3F2 to transactivate the DRD1 gene in a POU3F2 dependent manner. Can activate transcription directly or via association with the transcription machinery. May be involved in ATXN1 mutant-induced cell death. The interaction with ATXN1 mutant reduces levels of phosphorylated RNA polymerase II large subunit. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10198427, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10332029, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12062018, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20410308, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23512658}.
Subcellular locationNucleus {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10198427, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10332029, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12062018, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23512658}. Nucleus speckle {ECO:0000250}. Note=Colocalizes with SRSF2 in nuclear speckles, By similarity. Colocalized with POU3F2. Colocalized with ATXN1 in nuclear inclusion bodies. {ECO:0000250}.
