Family

RapZ-like family (IPR005337)

Short name: RapZ-like

Family relationships

None.

Description

RNase adapter protein RapZ is a RNA-binding protein that recruits the major endoribonuclease RNase E to sRNAs GlmZ [PMID: 23475961]. Bacterial small RNAs (sRNAs) regulate diverse cellular processes; GlmY and GlmZ are sRNAs that act hierarchically to activate mRNA glmS, which encodes glucosamine-6-phosphate (GlcN6P) synthase.

The RapZ-like family also includes many nucleotide-binding proteins, such as YvcJ [PMID: 19074378].
