DEAD-box RNA helicase 3 (DDX3) is a highly conserved family member of DEAD-box proteins in all eukaryotes from yeasts to human beings. Accumulating studies have confirmed DDX3 has the ability to regulate different steps of RNA metabolism, including RNA splicing, RNA export, transcription and translation initiation. Moreover, DDX3 is involved in many biological processes, such as stress response, cell apoptosis, cell cycle regulation and virus infection. In recent years, DDX3 is getting increasing attention due to its essential roles in cancer progression...

Human DEAD-box RNA helicase gene DDX6 was cloned from B-cell lymphoma cell line RC-K8. Previously, we reported that DDX6 acts as oncogene in several cancers such as colorectal cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the detailed mechanism of DDX6 action in carcinogenesis is largely unknown. In this study, we examined the functions of DDX6 in clinical gastric cancer (GC) samples and GC cells. DDX6 protein expression levels of cancer samples were higher than those of the adjacent normal tissues in 25 clinical GC samples (median value: 1...

STUDY QUESTION: Are the large cells derived from cultured DEAD box polypeptide 4 (DDX4)-positive oogonial stem cells (OSCs), isolated from the ovarian cortex of non-menopausal and menopausal women, oocyte-like cells? SUMMARY ANSWER: Under appropriate culture conditions, DDX4-positive OSCs from non-menopausal and menopausal women differentiate into large haploid oocyte-like cells expressing the major oocyte markers growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF-9) and synaptonemal complex protein 3 (SYCP3) and then enter meiosis...

Spermatogenesis involves a series of process including exiting from the mitotic cell cycle, entry into meiosis, completion of complex differentiation programs, and producing spermatozoa. Expression of various genes in an ordered manner, and interactions between various genes and their protein products, primarily controlled at the post-transcriptional level with DEAD-box RNA helicases playing a crucial role in germ cell development, are required for production of fertile sperm. Many members of this family have been deeply studied in spermatogenesis, such as DDX3X, DDX25 and DDX4, but few data are available on DDX52...

DNA helicase (PDH45) from the pea plant (Pisum sativum) is a member of the DEAD box protein family and plays a vital regulatory role in saline stress tolerance in plants. We previously reported that over-expression of PDH45 gene confers both seedling and reproductive stage salinity tolerance to a Bangladeshi rice landrace, Binnatoa (BA). In this study, transgenic BA-containing PDH45 (♂) was crossed with two different farmer-popular BRRI rice varieties (♀), BR28 and BR47, in a contained net house. F1 plants positive for the transgene and having recipient phenotype were advanced from F1 to F5...

Coronaviruses (CoV) and picornaviruses are plus-strand RNA viruses that use 5' cap-dependent and cap-independent strategies, respectively, for viral mRNA translation initiation. Here, we analyzed the effects of the plant compound silvestrol, a specific inhibitor of the DEAD-box RNA helicase eIF4A, on viral translation using a dual luciferase assay and virus-infected primary cells. Silvestrol was recently shown to have potent antiviral activity in Ebola virus-infected human macrophages. We found that silvestrol is also a potent and non-toxic inhibitor of cap-dependent viral mRNA translation in CoV-infected human embryonic lung fibroblast (MRC-5) cells...

Casein kinase 1 (CK1) plays central roles in various signal transduction pathways and performs many cellular activities. For a long time CK1 was thought to act independent of modulatory subunits and in a constitutive manner. Recently, DEAD box RNA helicases, in particular DEAD box RNA helicase 3 X-linked (DDX3X), were found to stimulate CK1 activity in vitro In order to observe CK1 activity in living cells and to study its interaction with DDX3X, we developed a CK1-specific FRET biosensor. This tool revealed that DDX3X is indeed required for full CK1 activity in living cells...

DbpA is an Escherichia coli DEAD-box RNA helicase implicated in RNA structural isomerization in the peptide bond formation site. In addition to the RecA-like catalytic core conserved in all of the members of DEAD-box family, DbpA contains a structured C-terminal domain, which is responsible for anchoring DbpA to hairpin 92 of 23S ribosomal RNA during the ribosome assembly process. Here, surface plasmon resonance was used to determine the equilibrium dissociation constant and the microscopic rate constants of the DbpA C-terminal domain association and dissociation to a fragment of 23S ribosomal RNA containing hairpin 92...

eIF4A is a DEAD-box RNA-dependent ATPase thought to unwind RNA secondary structure in the 5'-untranslated regions (UTRs) of mRNAs to promote their recruitment to the eukaryotic translation pre-initiation complex (PIC). We show that eIF4A's ATPase activity is markedly stimulated in the presence of the PIC, independently of eIF4E•eIF4G, but dependent on subunits i and g of the heteromeric eIF3 complex. Surprisingly, eIF4A accelerated the rate of recruitment of all mRNAs tested, regardless of their degree of structural complexity...

DEAD-box family protein is a kind of ATP dependent RNA helicase, which plays a critical role in RNA metabolism. The DEAD-box family proteins can affect cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis through regulating the expression of oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes and tumor related signaling pathways. It plays the role in promoting or suppressing cancer.

REVIEW
Benjamin Gilman, Pilar Tijerina, Rick Russell
Structured RNAs and RNA-protein complexes (RNPs) fold through complex pathways that are replete with misfolded traps, and many RNAs and RNPs undergo extensive conformational changes during their functional cycles. These folding steps and conformational transitions are frequently promoted by RNA chaperone proteins, notably by superfamily 2 (SF2) RNA helicase proteins. The two largest families of SF2 helicases, DEAD-box and DEAH-box proteins, share evolutionarily conserved helicase cores, but unwind RNA helices through distinct mechanisms...

Myxoma virus (MYXV), a Leporipoxvirus, is being developed as an oncolytic virotherapeutic for the treatment of a variety of human cancers. MYXV tropism for human cancer cells is largely mediated by intracellular signaling networks that regulate viral replication or innate antiviral response pathways. Thus, MYXV is fully or partially permissive for the majority of human cancer cells that harbor defects in antiviral signaling, but a minority are nonpermissive because the virus infection aborts before its completion...

DEAD-box RNA helicases (DBRHs) modulate RNA secondary structure, allowing RNA molecules to adopt the conformations required for interaction with their target proteins. RH50 is a chloroplast-located DBRH that co-localizes and is co-expressed with GUN1, a central factor in chloroplast-to-nucleus signaling. When combined with mutations that impair plastid gene expression (prors1-1, prpl11-1, prps1-1, prps21-1, prps17-1 and prpl24-1), rh50 and gun1 mutations evoke similar patterns of epistatic effects. These observations, together with the synergistic growth phenotype of the double mutant rh50-1 gun1-102, suggest that RH50 and GUN1 are functionally related and that this function is associated with plastid gene expression, in particular ribosome functioning...

The RNA degradosome is a multi-enzyme assembly that plays a central role in the RNA metabolism of Escherichia coli and numerous other bacterial species including pathogens. At the core of the assembly is the endoribonuclease RNase E, one of the largest E. coli proteins and also one that bears the greatest region predicted to be natively unstructured. This extensive unstructured region, situated in the C-terminal half of RNase E, is punctuated with conserved short linear motifs that recruit partner proteins, direct RNA interactions, and enable association with the cytoplasmic membrane...

We report on a homozygous frameshift deletion in DDX59 (c.185del: p.Phe62fs*13) in a family presenting with oro-facio-digital syndrome phenotype associated to a broad neurological involvement characterized by microcephaly, intellectual disability, epilepsy, and white matter signal abnormalities associated with cortical and sub-cortical ischemic events. DDX59 encodes a DEAD-box RNA helicase and its role in brain function and neurological diseases is unclear. We showed a reduction of mutant cDNA and perturbation of SHH signalling from patient-derived cell lines; furthermore, analysis of human brain gene expression provides evidence that DDX59 is enriched in oligodendrocytes and might act within pathways of leukoencephalopathies associated genes...

Viruses accomplish their replication by exploiting many cellular resources, including metabolites and energy. Similarly to other (+)RNA viruses, tomato bushy stunt virus (TBSV) induces major changes in infected cells. However, the source of energy required to fuel TBSV replication is unknown. We find that TBSV co-opts the cellular glycolytic ATP-generating pyruvate kinase (PK) directly into the viral replicase complex to boost progeny RNA synthesis. The co-opted PK generates high levels of ATP within the viral replication compartment at the expense of a reduction in cytosolic ATP pools...

DDX3X is a conserved DEAD-box RNA helicase involved in translation initiation and other processes of RNA metabolism. Mutations in human DDX3X and deregulation of its expression are linked to tumorigenesis and intellectual disability. The protein is also targeted by diverse viruses. Previous studies demonstrated helicase and NTPase activities for DDX3X, but important biochemical features of the enzyme remain unclear. Here, we systematically characterize enzymatic activities of human DDX3X and compare these to its closely related Saccharomyces cerevisiae ortholog Ded1p...

Human DEAD box ATP-dependent RNA helicase DDX3X has been demonstrated to exert crucial functions in carcinogenesis and antiviral immune response. However, to our knowledge, few information focused on the functions of fish DDX3X. In this study, we cloned and characterized a DDX3X homolog from orange spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides) (EcDDX3X). EcDDX3X encoded a 733-amino acid protein which shared 97% and 76% identity to spiny damselfish (Acanthochromis polyacanthus) and human (Homo sapiens), respectively...

Rapid advances in DNA sequencing technologies have resulted in the accumulation of large data sets in the public domain, facilitating comparative studies to provide novel insights into the evolution of life. Phylogenetic studies across the eukaryotic taxa have been reported but on the basis of a limited number of genes. Here we present a genome-wide analysis across different plant, fungal, protist, and animal species, with reference to the 36,002 expressed genes of the rice genome. Our analysis revealed 9831 genes unique to rice and 98 genes conserved across all 49 eukaryotic species analysed...
