Insulin-like Growth Factor mRNA Binding Factor-2 (IGF2BP2, also known as IMP2 and VICKZ2) binds several specific RNAs containing the sequence motif CAUH (where H is A, C, or U). Binding causes stabilization and subcellular localization of the RNA.
Isoforms of IGF2 mRNA containing leader-3 are bound by IGF2BP2 at the 5' UTR, repressing translation (Other isoforms of IGF2 are constitutive).
IGF2BP2 may be a causal factor in type 2 diabetes.
