The activation of inflammatory cells is controlled at transcriptional and posttranscriptional levels. Posttranscriptional regulation modifies mRNA stability and translation, allowing for elaborate control of proteins required for inflammation, such as proinflammatory cytokines, prostaglandin synthases, cell surface co-stimulatory molecules, and even transcriptional modifiers. Such regulation is important for coordinating the initiation and resolution of inflammation, and is mediated by a set of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), including Regnase-1, Roquin, Tristetraprolin (TTP), and AU-rich elements/poly(U)-binding/degradation factor 1 (AUF1)...

The disassembly of the intron lariat spliceosome (ILS) marks the end of a splicing cycle. Here we report a cryoelectron microscopy structure of the ILS complex from Saccharomyces cerevisiae at an average resolution of 3.5 Å. The intron lariat remains bound in the spliceosome whereas the ligated exon is already dissociated. The step II splicing factors Prp17 and Prp18, along with Cwc21 and Cwc22 that stabilize the 5' exon binding to loop I of U5 small nuclear RNA (snRNA), have been released from the active site assembly...

Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs) are rapidly evolving species-specific natural killer (NK) cell receptors associated with protection against multiple different human viral infections. We report that the activating receptor KIR2DS2 directly recognizes viral peptides derived from conserved regions of flaviviral superfamily 2 RNA helicases in the context of major histocompatibility complex class I. We started by documenting that peptide LNPSVAATL from the hepatitis C virus (HCV) helicase binds HLA-C*0102, leading to NK cell activation through engagement of KIR2DS2...

DNA nuclease/helicase 2 (DNA2), a multi-functional protein protecting the high fidelity of genomic transmission, plays critical roles in DNA replication and repair processes. In the maturation of Okazaki fragments, DNA2 acts synergistically with other enzymes to cleave the DNA-RNA primer flaps via different pathways. DNA2 is also involved in the stability of mitochondrial DNA and the maintenance of telomeres. Moreover, DNA2 potentially participates in controlling the cell cycle by repairing the DNA replication faults at main checkpoints...

The spliceosome is an intricate molecular machine which catalyses the removal of introns from eukaryotic mRNA precursors by two trans-esterification reactions (branching and exon ligation) to produce mature mRNA with uninterrupted protein coding sequences. The structures of the spliceosome in several key states determined by electron cryo-microscopy have greatly advanced our understanding of its molecular mechanism. The catalytic RNA core is formed during the activation of the fully assembled B to Bact complex and remains largely unchanged throughout the splicing cycle...

The nuclear exosome and the associated RNA helicase Mtr4 participate in the processing of several ribonucleoprotein particles (RNP), including the maturation of the large ribosomal subunit (60S). S. cerevisiae Mtr4 interacts directly with Nop53, a ribosomal biogenesis factor present in late pre-60S particles containing precursors of the 5.8S rRNA. The Mtr4-Nop53 interaction plays a pivotal role in the maturation of the 5.8S rRNA, providing a physical link between the nuclear exosome and the pre-60S RNP. An analogous interaction between Mtr4 and another ribosome biogenesis factor, Utp18, directs the exosome to an earlier pre-ribosomal particle...

RECQ1 helicase has multiple roles in DNA replication, including restoration of the replication fork and DNA repair, and plays an important role in tumour progression. Its expression is highly elevated in glioblastoma as compared to healthy brain tissue. We studied the effects of small hairpin RNA (shRNA)-induced silencing of RECQ1 helicase on the increase in cell number and the invasion of U87 glioblastoma cells. RECQ1 silencing reduced the rate of increase in the number of U87 cells by 30%. This corresponded with a 40% reduction of the percentage of cells in the G2 phase of the cell cycle, and an accumulation of cells in the G1 phase...

The de novo assembly and post-splicing reassembly of the U4/U6.U5 tri-snRNP remain to be investigated. We report here that ZIP, a protein containing a CCCH type of zinc finger and a G-patch domain as we characterized previously, regulates pre-mRNA splicing in a RNA binding-independent manner. We found that ZIP is physically associated with the U4/U6.U5 tri-snRNP. Remarkably, ZIP-containing tri-snRNP has a sedimentation coefficient ~35S, a tri-snRNP that has not been described before. We showed that the 35S tri-snRNP contains hPrp24, indicative of a state when the U4/U6 di-snRNP is just integrating with the U5 snRNP...

The RNA-degrading exosome mediates the processing and decay of many cellular transcripts. In the yeast nucleus, the ubiquitous 10-subunit exosome core complex (Exo-9-Rrp44) functions with four conserved cofactors (Rrp6, Rrp47, Mtr4, and Mpp6). Biochemical and structural studies to date have shed insights into the mechanisms of the exosome core and its nuclear cofactors, with the exception of Mpp6. We report the 3.2-Å resolution crystal structure of a S. cerevisiae Exo-9-Mpp6 complex, revealing how linear motifs in the Mpp6 middle domain bind Rrp40 via evolutionary conserved residues...

Two nonstructural proteins encoded by Zika virus strain MR766 RNA, a methyltransferase and a helicase, were crystallized and their structures were solved and refined at 2.10 and 2.01 Å resolution, respectively. The NS5 methyltransferase contains a bound S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) co-substrate. The NS3 helicase is in the apo form. Comparison with published crystal structures of the helicase in the apo, nucleotide-bound and single-stranded RNA (ssRNA)-bound states suggests that binding of ssRNA to the helicase may occur through conformational selection rather than induced fit...

Loquacious-PD (Loqs-PD) is required for biogenesis of many endogenous siRNAs in Drosophila In vitro, Loqs-PD enhances the rate of dsRNA cleavage by Dicer-2 and also enables processing of substrates normally refractory to cleavage. Using purified components, and Loqs-PD truncations, we provide a mechanistic basis for Loqs-PD functions. Our studies indicate that the 22 amino acids at the C terminus of Loqs-PD, including an FDF-like motif, directly interact with the Hel2 subdomain of Dicer-2's helicase domain...

Escherichia coli RNase E is an essential enzyme that forms multicomponent ribonucleolytic complexes known as "RNA degradosomes." These complexes consist of four major components: RNase E, PNPase, RhlB RNA helicase, and enolase. However, the role of enolase in the RNase E/degradosome is not understood. Here, we report that presence of enolase in the RNase E/degradosome under anaerobic conditions regulates cell morphology, resulting in Ecoli MG1655 cell filamentation. Under anaerobic conditions, enolase bound to the RNase E/degradosome stabilizes the small RNA (sRNA) DicF, i...

Barley stripe mosaic virus (BSMV) TGB1 is a multifunctional movement protein with RNA binding, ATPase, and helicase activities that mainly localizes to the plasmodesmata (PD) in infected cells. Here we show that TGB1 localizes to the nucleus and the nucleolus, as well as the cytoplasm, and that TGB1 nuclear-cytoplasmic trafficking is required for BSMV cell-to-cell movement. Prediction analyses and laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM) experiments verified that TGB1 has a nucleolar localization signal (NoLS) (aa 95-104) and a nuclear localization signal (NLS) (aa 227-238)...

DDX3 is a DEAD box RNA helicase with oncogenic properties. RK-33 is developed as a small-molecule inhibitor of DDX3 and showed potent radiosensitizing activity in preclinical tumor models. This study aimed to assess DDX3 as a target in breast cancer and to elucidate how RK-33 exerts its anti-neoplastic effects. High DDX3 expression was present in 35% of breast cancer patient samples and correlated with markers of aggressiveness and shorter survival. With a quantitative proteomics approach, we identified proteins involved in the mitochondrial translation and respiratory electron transport pathways to be significantly downregulated after RK-33 or DDX3 knockdown...

The RNA helicase Prp2 facilitates the remodelling of the spliceosomal B(act) complex to the catalytically activated B* complex just before step one of splicing. As a high-resolution cryo-EM structure of the B* complex is currently lacking, the precise spliceosome remodelling events mediated by Prp2 remain poorly understood. To investigate the latter, we used chemical structure probing to compare the RNA structure of purified yeast B(act) and B* complexes. Our studies reveal deviations from conventional RNA helices in the functionally important U6 snRNA internal stem loop and U2/U6 helix Ib in the activated B(act) complex, and to a lesser extent in B*...

Solenopsis invicta virus 2 is a single-stranded positive-sense picorna-like RNA virus with an unusual genome structure. The monopartite genome of approximately 11 kb contains four open reading frames in its 5' third, three of which encode proteins with homology to picornavirus-like jelly-roll fold capsid proteins. These are followed by an intergenic region, and then a single long open reading frame that covers the 3' two-thirds of the genome. The polypeptide translation of this 3' open reading frame contains motifs characteristic of picornavirus-like helicase, protease and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase domains...

DEAD-box (DDX) helicases are vital for the recognition of RNA and metabolism and are critical for the initiation of antiviral innate immunity. Modification of RNA is involved in many biological processes; however, its role in antiviral innate immunity has remained unclear. Here we found that nuclear DDX member DDX46 inhibited the production of type I interferons after viral infection. DDX46 bound Mavs, Traf3 and Traf6 transcripts (which encode signaling molecules involved in antiviral responses) via their conserved CCGGUU element...

Milk synthesis of bovine mammary gland is a complex biological process that is regulated by hormones and nutrients, but the mechanism of these regulations still needs further research. DEAD-box helicase 6 (DDX6) is an important member of the RNA helicase family, involved in the regulation of mRNA storage and translation in different systems, but its physiological role and mechanism are largely unclear. In this study, we describe DDX6 as a potentially novel negative regulator for milk synthesis and proliferation of bovine mammary epithelial cells (BMECs)...

The DEAD-box RNA helicase DDX3 plays divergent roles in tumorigenesis, however, its function in mitosis is unclear. Immunofluorescence indicated that DDX3 localized to centrosome throughout the cell cycle and colocalized with centrosome-associated p53 during mitosis in HCT116 and U2OS cells. DDX3 depletion promoted chromosome misalignment, segregation defects and multipolar mitosis, eventually leading to G2/M delay and cell death. DDX3 prevented multipolar mitosis by inactivation and coalescence of supernumerary centrosomes...
