A Cys3His zinc-binding domain from Nup475/tristetraprolin: a novel fold with a disklike structure.


Nup475 (also known as tristetraprolin and TIS11) includes two zinc-binding domains of the form Cys-X8-Cys-X5-Cys-X3-His. These domains are required for rapid degradation of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and other mRNAs through the interaction with AU-rich elements in their 3'-untranslated regions. The three-dimensional solution structure of the first domain… (More)
