Multiple functions of tristetraprolin/TIS11 RNA-binding proteins in the regulation of mRNA biogenesis and degradation



Multiple functions of tristetraprolin/TIS11 RNA-binding proteins in the regulation of mRNA biogenesis and degradation



Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences 70(12): 2031-2044



Members of the tristetraprolin (TTP/TIS11) family are important RNA-binding proteins initially characterized as mediators of mRNA degradation. They act via their interaction with AU-rich elements present in the 3'UTR of regulated transcripts. However, it is progressively appearing that the different steps of mRNA processing and fate including transcription, splicing, polyadenylation, translation, and degradation are coordinately regulated by multifunctional integrator proteins that possess a larger panel of functions than originally anticipated. Tristetraprolin and related proteins are very good examples of such integrators. This review gathers the present knowledge on the functions of this family of RNA-binding proteins, including their role in AU-rich element-mediated mRNA decay and focuses on recent advances that support the concept of their broader involvement in distinct steps of mRNA biogenesis and degradation.
