The RNA‐binding protein HuR (human antigen R) associates with numerous transcripts, coding and noncoding, and controls their splicing, localization, stability, and translation. Through its regulation of target transcripts, HuR has been implicated in cellular events including proliferation, senescence, differentiation, apoptosis, and the stress and immune responses. In turn, HuR influences processes such as cancer and inflammation. HuR function is primarily regulated through posttranslational modifications that alter its subcellular localization and its ability to bind target RNAs; such modifications include phosphorylation, methylation, ubiquitination, NEDDylation, and proteolytic cleavage. In this review, we describe the modifications that impact upon HuR function on gene expression programs and disease states.

Map of posttranslational modifications of HuR (human antigen R). Structure of HuR, depicting the three RNA recognition motifs (RRMs) and the central hinge region. The modified amino acids are indicated. The modifying enzymes, including the kinases (gray shading), are indicated on the left. The impact of each modification on HuR localization and function is indicated on the right. References citing the relevant studies are listed.
