DEAD-box ATP-dependent RNA helicase CshB (IPR030881)

Short name: CshB

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



DEAD-box RNA helicases play important roles in remodelling RNA molecules and in facilitating a variety of RNA-protein interactions [PMID: 23175651]. CshB is a DEAD-box RNA helicase involved in cold tolerance, motility, and tolerance to heat, alkali and oxidative stress [PMID: 22820328, PMID: 16861794]. It may work in conjunction with the cold shock proteins to ensure proper initiation of transcription at low and optimal temperatures [PMID: 16352840, PMID: 22564273].
