Bycroft M, et al. (1997) The solution structure of the S1 RNA binding domain: a member of an ancient nucleic acid-binding fold. Cell 88(2):235-42
Abstract: The S1 domain, originally identified in ribosomal protein S1, is found in a large number of RNA-associated proteins. The structure of the S1 RNA-binding domain from the E. coli polynucleotide phosphorylase has been determined using NMR methods and consists of a five-stranded antiparallel beta barrel. Conserved residues on one face of the barrel and adjacent loops form the putative RNA-binding site. The structure of the S1 domain is very similar to that of cold shock protein, suggesting that they are both derived from an ancient nucleic acid-binding protein. Enhanced sequence searches reveal hitherto unidentified S1 domains in RNase E, RNase II, NusA, EMB-5, and other proteins.
