Description The androgen receptor mRNA contains a highly conserved UC-rich region in the 3'-untranslated region that are the target of HuR and CP1/CP2 RNA binding proteins imvolved in the regulation of mRNA stability and translation initiation. Mutational analysis has shown that HuR (also binding AU-rich motifs) binds to the U-rich portion of the UC-rich region whereas CP1 and CP2 bind to the C-rich portion. A model of cooperative binding of HuR and CPs is proposed with binding disruption resulting in transcript destabilization.
