Quaking protein (QKI) and Muscleblind protein (MBL) can bind certain circRNA flanking introns and act as RBPs to bring two flanking intronic sequences close together, hence provoking the circularization (Figure 1(d)) [19, 20].
Muscleblind proteins regulate alternative splicing.
When injected into the muscle cells of mice with myotonic dystrophy, the molecule found its way to the cell nucleus, broke up the deposits of toxic RNA, freed the captive muscleblind proteins, and ultimately improved the function of the muscle cells.
