type I K homology (KH) RNA-binding domain found in KH domain-containing, RNA-binding, signal transduction-associated protein 1 (KHDRBS1) and similar proteins
KHDRBS1, also called GAP-associated tyrosine phosphoprotein p62, or Src-associated in mitosis 68 kDa protein, or Sam68, or p21 Ras GTPase-activating protein-associated p62, or p68, is an RNA-binding protein that plays a role in the regulation of alternative splicing and influences mRNA splice site selection and exon inclusion. It binds to RNA containing 5'-[AU]UAA-3' as a bipartite motif spaced by more than 15 nucleotides. It also binds poly(A). KHDRBS1 acts as a putative regulator of mRNA stability and/or translation rates and mediates mRNA nuclear export. It is recruited and tyrosine phosphorylated by several receptor systems, for example the T-cell, leptin and insulin receptors.
