Yeast proteins Gar1p, Nop1p, Npl3p, Nsr1p, and Rps2p are natively methylated and are substrates of the arginine methyltransferase Hmt1p.
Sydney, Australia. In Proteomics, Sep 2015
Here we used peptide immunoaffinity enrichment, followed by LC-ETD-MS/MS, to discover 21 native sites of arginine methylation on five putative Hmt1 substrate proteins, namely Gar1p (H/ACA ribonucleoprotein complex subunit 1), Nop1p (rRNA 2'-O-methyltransferase fibrillarin), Npl3p (nucleolar protein 3), Nsr1p (nuclear localization sequence-binding protein), and Rps2p (40S ribosomal protein S2).
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: an update on recent genetic insights.

Above all, the RNA-binding protein, such as FUS, TAF15, EWSR1 and hnRNPA1, have structural and functional similarities to TDP-43, and physiological functions of some molecules, including VCP, UBQLN2, OPTN, FIG4 and SQSTM1, are involved in a protein degradation system.
