Depositor Comments

Our lab isolated the protein based on it's ability to bind to a region of the PAI-1 (plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1) 3'UTR that we had determined to be involved in the cAMP regulation of mRNA stability. A search of the database revealed that the cDNA for the protein had been cloned by the German Genome Project and dubbed hypothetical protein. They kindly provided us with the clone, which we subcloned into pET-15b for expression of the protein.
Subsequently, we discovered isoforms of the protein with or without 6 and/or 15 amino acid insertions. These variants are now subcloned into pCELF.
