We have determined the solution structure of the C-terminal quarter of human poly(A)-binding protein (hPABP). The protein fragment contains a protein domain, PABC [for poly(A)-binding protein C-terminal domain], which is also found associated with the HECT family of ubiquitin ligases. By using peptides derived from PABP interacting protein (Paip) 1, Paip2,(More)
The yeast proteins Dsk2 and Rad23 belong to a family of proteins that contain an N-terminal ubiquitin-like domain (UBL) and a C-terminal ubiquitin-associated domain (UBA). Both Dsk2 and Rad23 function as adaptors to target ubiquitin-labelled proteins to the proteasome through recognition of polyubiquitin (four or more K48-linked ubiquitins) by their UBA(More)
The first structure of a 2'-deoxy-2'-fluoro-D-arabinose nucleic acid (2'F-ANA)/RNA duplex is presented. We report the structural characterization by NMR spectroscopy of a small hybrid hairpin, r(GGAC)d(TTCG)2'F-a(GTCC), containing a 2'F-ANA/RNA stem and a four-residue DNA loop. Complete (1)H, (13)C, (19)F, and (31)P resonance assignments, scalar coupling(More)
Hybrids of RNA and arabinonucleic acid (ANA) as well as the 2'-fluoro-ANA analog (2'F-ANA) were recently shown to be substrates of the enzyme RNase H. Although RNase H binds to double-stranded RNA, no cleavage occurs with such duplexes. Therefore, knowledge of the structure of ANA/RNA hybrids may prove helpful in the design of future antisense(More)
Inversion of configuration of the C2' position of RNA leads to a very unique nucleic acid structure: arabinonucleic acid (ANA). ANA, and its 2'-fluoro derivative (2'F-ANA) from hybrids with RNA that are capable of activating RNase H, resulting in cleavage of the RNA strand. In this paper, we review the properties of duplexes formed between ANA (or 2'F-ANA)(More)
