RING finger protein
The evolutionary landscape of PRC1 core components in green lineage.
Changsha, China. In Planta, Feb 2016
We evaluated the origin of plant PRC1 RING-finger proteins (RING1 and BMI1) through comparing with the homologs in some representative unikonts and using BMI1- and RING1-like proteins as reciprocal outgroup, finding both PRC1 RING-finger proteins have the earliest origin in mosses, similar to LHP1.
Arenavirus Quasispecies and Their Biological Implications.
Los Angeles, United States. In Curr Top Microbiol Immunol, Nov 2015
The L genome RNA encodes the viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp, or L polymerase) and the small (ca 11 kDa) RING finger protein Z that has functions of a bona fide matrix protein including directing virus budding.
RBR E3-ligases at work.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Embo Rep, 2014
They catalyse ubiquitin conjugation by a concerted RING/HECT-like mechanism in which the RING1 domain facilitates E2-discharge to directly form a thioester intermediate with a cysteine in RING2.
