MCG10 is a member of the KH-domain RNA-binding protein family. Proteins of this family also referred to as alpha-CPs, bind to RNA with specificity for C-rich pyrimidine regions. Alpha-CPs play important roles in post-transcriptional activities and have different cellular distributions. MCG10 is induced by p53 and DNA damage via two p53-responsive promoter elements. Its overexpression in transfected cells results in the suppression of cell proliferation by inducing apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in G2-M. Decreased expression of one isoform of MCG10 has been observed in many forms of lung cancer, leading to speculation that MCG10 can act as a tumor suppressor. Multiple alternatively spliced isoforms of MCG10 have been identified.
