NSR1 is required for pre-rRNA processing and for the proper maintenance of steady-state levels of ribosomal subunits.


NSR1 is a yeast nuclear localization sequence-binding protein showing striking similarity in its domain structure to nucleolin. Cells lacking NSR1 are viable but have a severe growth defect. We show here that NSR1, like nucleolin, is involved in ribosome biogenesis. The nsr1 mutant is deficient in pre-rRNA processing such that the initial 35S pre-rRNA… (More)
