Monoclonal Rabbit Supernatant B IH FC
Musahi2 (Msi2) is a member of Musashi family of evolutionarily conserved RNA-binding proteins. In mammals, Musahi1 and 2 shares similar primary structure, RNA binding specificity, and expression profile during CNS development. Highly co-expressed with Musahi1 in neural precursor cells, Musahi2 has been linked to proliferation and maintenance of stem cells in central nervous system. With two conserved tandem RNA recognition motifs, Musashi2 binds to target mRNAs and regulates RNA expression at translation level (1). Chromosomal aberrations involving Mushahi2 might play a role in disease progression for chronic myeloid leukemia (2).
Catalog #M9515-02
In mammals, the Musashi family is important for cell fate determination, playing roles in maintenance of the stem-cell state, differentiation and tumorigenesis. MSI2 or Musashi2 is a member of RNA-binding proteins that appear to play central roles in post transcriptional gene regulation. The MSI2 gene encodes a protein containing two conserved tandem RNA recognition motifs. MSI2 may have a unique role that is required for the generation and/or maintenance of specific neuronal lineages.
