ABT1/ESF2, RNA recognition motif (IPR034353)
Short name: ABT1/ESF2_RRM
Overlapping homologous superfamilies
- Nucleotide-binding alpha-beta plait domain superfamily (IPR012677)
- RNA-binding domain superfamily (IPR035979)
- RNA recognition motif domain (IPR000504)
- ABT1/ESF2, RNA recognition motif (IPR034353)
This entry represents the RNA recognition motif (RRM) of a novel nuclear protein termed ABT1 and its homologous counterpart, pre-rRNA-processing protein Esf2 (eighteen S factor 2), from yeast.
ABT1 associates with the TATA-binding protein (TBP) and enhances basal transcription activity of class II promoters. Meanwhile, ABT1 could be a transcription cofactor that can bind to DNA in a sequence-independent manner [PMID: 10648625].
