Cytoplasmic activation/proliferation-associated protein-1 C term
This family of proteins is found in eukaryotes. Proteins in this family are typically between 343 and 708 amino acids in length. This family is the C terminal region of caprin-1. Caprin-1 is a protein involved in regulating cellular proliferation. In mutated phenotypes, the G1 phase of the cell cycle is greatly lengthened, impairing normal proliferation. The C terminal region of caprin-1 contains RGG motifs which are characteristic of RNA binding domains. It is possible that caprin-1 functions through an RNA binding mechanism.
