Solution structure of an archaeal DUF61 family protein SSO0941 encoded by a gene in the operon of box C/D RNA protein complexes.

Domain of unknown function 61 (DUF61) family proteins widely exist in archaea and the genes of DUF61 proteins in crenarchaea are in an operon containing two genes of box C/D RNA protein complexes. Here we report the solution NMR structure of DUF61 family member protein SSO0941, from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus. SSO0941 has a rigid… CONTINUE READING
