ELAV-like protein 1 or HuR (human antigen R) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ELAVL1gene.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the ELAVL protein family. This encoded protein contains 3 RNA-binding domains and binds cis-acting AU-rich elements. It stabilizes mRNAs and thereby regulates gene expression.
Mab 19F12 is a well cited antibody used in the identification of HuR
