Literature associating PTBP2 and spinal cord glioma
Neural polypyrimidine tract-binding protein; RNA-binding protein which binds to intronic polypyrimidine tracts and mediates negative regulation of exons splicing. May antagonize in a tissue-specific manner the ability of NOVA1 to activate exon selection. In addition to its function in pre-mRNA splicing, plays also a role in the regulation of translation. Isoform 5 has a reduced affinity for RNA.
Synonyms: PTBP2, PTBP2p, hPTBP2, B4DSI2, O95652 ...
