Cold-inducible RNA-binding protein (CIRP) is an intracellular stress-response protein that can respond to various stress conditions by changing its expression and regulating mRNA stability.

CIRP is expressed in a large variety of tissues, including testis, brain, lung, kidney, liver, stomach, bone marrow, and heart. Read More
