IGF2BP2 Background

Insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA-binding protein 2 (IGF2BP2) is a member of the IGF-II mRNA-binding protein (IMP) family. IGF2BP2 is a member of a family of mRNA binding proteins that, collectively, have been shown to bind to several different mRNAs in mammalian cells, including one of the mRNAs encoding insulin-like growth factor-2. Insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA-binding protein 2 (IGF2BP2) is involved in the stimulation of insulin action. IGF2BP2 / IMP2 is expressed in oocytes, granulosa cells of small and growing follicles, Leydig cells, spermatogonia and semen (at protein level). It is also expressed in testicular cancer (at protein level). It is expressed weakly in heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, bone marrow, colon, kidney, salivary glands, testis and pancreas. IGF2BP2 binds to the 5'-UTR of the insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) mRNAs. This binding is isoform-specific. IGF2BP2 may regulate translation of target mRNAs.
