lin-28 , csdd1 , zcchc1 , lin28 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
RNA-binding protein invovled in translation or RNA processing

Protein Function :
RNA-binding protein that inhibits processing of pre-let-7 miRNAs and regulates translation of mRNAs that control developmental timing, pluripotency and metabolism. Seems to recognize a common structura...[+]
