Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
lin-28 homolog B

LIN-28 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
RNA binding

Protein Function :
Suppressor of specific microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis. Binds target primary miRNA transcripts and sequester them in the nucleolus, away from the microprocessor complex, hence preventing their processing i...[+]
