CIRBP, also named as A18HNRNP and CIRP, is a cold-inducible mRNA binding protein that plays a protective role in the genotoxic stress response by stabilizing transcripts of genes involved in cell survival. CIRBP is also involved in cap-independent translation upon moderate cold-shock. It acts as a translational activator. CIRBP is a suppressive rather stimulatory effect on proliferation. It acts as a translational repressor. CIRBP is an immortalized gene in murine primary cells. CIRBP promotes assembly of stress granules (SGs), when overexpressed. It is a potential proto-oncogenic proteins upon overexpression.(PMID:19900510) Suppression of CIRBP increased the apoptotic cell population of neural stem cells at moderate low temperature. (PMID:20735994) This antibody can bind the close sequences genes. This antibody is a mouse monoclonal antibody raised against full length CIRBP of human origin.
