ZFP36L1 is a member of the TIS11 family of early response genes, which are induced by various agonists such as the phorbol ester TPA and the polypeptide mitogen EGF. The ZFP36L1 gene is well conserved across species and has a promoter that contains motifs seen in other early-response genes. ZFP36L1 contains a putative zinc finger domain with a repeating cys-his motif. ZFP36L1 is believed to be a nuclear transcription factor most likely functioning in regulating the response to growth factors. Different isoforms encoded by alternatively spliced transcript variants have been isolated.
