Domain

Nucleolar GTP-binding protein 1, Rossman-fold domain (IPR010674)

Short name: NOG1_Rossman_fold_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain represents a conserved region of approximately 60 residues in length within nucleolar GTP-binding protein 1 (NOG1). The NOG1 family includes eukaryotic, bacterial and archaeal proteins. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the NOG1 gene has been shown to be essential for cell viability, suggesting that NOG1 may play an important role in nucleolar functions. In particular, NOG1 is believed to be functionally linked to ribosome biogenesis, which occurs in the nucleolus. In eukaryotes, NOG1 mutants were found to disrupt the biogenesis of the 60S ribosomal subunit [PMID: 12788953].

The DRG and OBG proteins as well as the prokaryotic NOG-like proteins are homologous throughout their length to the amino half of eukaryotic NOG1, which contains the GTP binding motifs (IPR006073); the N-terminal GTP-binding motif is required for function.
