Characterization of a cDNA encoding a novel type of RNA-binding protein in tobacco: its expression and nucleic acid-binding properties

A cDNA encoding an RNA-binding protein (ribonucleoprotein or RNP) was isolated from a tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris) cDNA library. The predicted protein (termed RGP-2) is 259 amino acids in length and consists of an N-terminal sequence of 39 amino acids, a consensus sequence type RNA-binding domain of 82 amino acids, a glycine-rich domain of 83 amino acids… CONTINUE READING
