RNA-binding proteins

Definition

RNA-binding proteins are proteins that bind to ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules, are generally found in the cytoplasm and nucleus, and are important in forming ribonucleoproteins (RNPs). One type of RNP, hnRNPs (heteronuclear proteins), are important in splicing of mRNA (messenger RNA), polyadenylation, stabilization, localization and translation.
