A conserved motif in the yeast nucleolar protein Nop2p contains an essential cysteine residue.

Abstract

Nop2p is an essential nucleolar protein in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that is involved in large ribosomal subunit assembly. It has substantial homology with human p120, the proliferation-associated nucleolar antigen that is overexpressed in many human cancers. A motif containing an invariant Pro-Cys dipeptide is found in Nop2p, p120 and the bacterial Fmu… (More)
