RNA binding motif protein 28
The protein encoded by this gene is a specific nucleolar component of the spliceosomal small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP)complexes . It specifically associates with U1, U2, U4, U5, and U6 small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs), possibly coordinating their transition through the nucleolus. Mutation in this gene causes alopecia, progressive neurological defects, and endocrinopathy (ANE syndrome), a pleiotropic and clinically heterogeneous disorder. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from
In order to ascertain the utility of some of the identified genes as molecular markers and therapeutic targets, semi-quantitative RT-PCR analysis was carried out in a panel of matched oral normal and tumor samples, that confirmed GLTP, PCNA, RBM28, C17orf75 and DIAPH1 as significantly upregulated, whereas TNKS2, PAM and TUBB2C showed significant downregulation in tumor samples.
