Disease relevance of WCSP1


High impact information on WCSP1

  • Structural and expression similarities to E. coli CspA suggest that WCSP1 may be involved in gene regulation during cold acclimation [1].
  • The putative WCSP1 protein contains a three-domain structure consisting of an N-terminal cold shock domain with two internal conserved consensus RNA binding domains and an internal glycine-rich region, which is interspersed with three C-terminal CX(2)CX(4)HX(4)C (CCHC) zinc fingers [1].
