Drosha, ribonuclease type III

Ribonuclease III, Drosha
Members of the ribonuclease III superfamily of double-stranded (ds) RNA-specific endoribonucleases participate in diverse RNA maturation and decay pathways in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells (Fortin et al., 2002 [PubMed 12191433]). The RNase III Drosha is the core nuclease that executes the initiation step of microRNA (miRNA) processing in the nucleus (Lee et al., 2003 [PubMed 14508493]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: Dicer, miR, CAN, Gy-1, prolactin receptor

Expression of DROSHA in the Uterus of Mice in Early Pregnancy and Its Potential Significance During Embryo Implantation.
Liu et al., Chongqing, China. In Reprod Sci, Feb 2016
DROSHA is the microRNA-processing enzyme and is required for the maturation of microRNAs.
Structure of Human DROSHA.
Woo et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Cell, Feb 2016
MicroRNA maturation is initiated by RNase III DROSHA that cleaves the stem loop of primary microRNA.

Interestingly, biogenesis of miR-215 and several miRNAs is accelerated post-transcriptionally by hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) through HIF-Drosha interaction.
Characterization of ribonuclease III from Brucella.
Liu et al., Wuhan, China. In Gene, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: Bacterial ribonuclease III (RNase III) is a highly conserved endonuclease, which plays pivotal roles in RNA maturation and decay pathways by cleaving double-stranded structure of RNAs.
Hypoxia-upregulated microRNA-630 targets Dicer, leading to increased tumor progression.
Sood et al., Houston, United States. In Oncogene, Feb 2016
Recent studies have shown that hypoxia downregulates Drosha and Dicer, key enzymes in miRNA biogenesis, causing a decreased pool of miRNAs in cancer and resulting in increased tumor growth and metastasis.
Sperm-borne miRNAs and endo-siRNAs are important for fertilization and preimplantation embryonic development.
Yan et al., Reno, United States. In Development, Jan 2016
Germline-specific Dicer and Drosha conditional knockout (cKO) mice produce gametes (i.e., sperm and oocytes) partially deficient in miRNAs and/or endo-siRNAs, thus providing a unique opportunity for testing whether normal sperm (paternal) or oocyte (maternal) miRNA and endo-siRNA contents are required for fertilization and preimplantation development.
Design of Effective Primary MicroRNA Mimics With Different Basal Stem Conformations.
Weinberg et al., Johannesburg, South Africa. In Mol Ther Nucleic Acids, Dec 2015
Cleavage of the pri-miRNA to a precursor miRNA (pre-miRNA) by Drosha-DGCR8 typically occurs adjacent to a basal stem of ~11 bp.
Drosha controls dendritic cell development by cleaving messenger RNAs encoding inhibitors of myelopoiesis.
Chong et al., Australia. In Nat Immunol, Nov 2015
To investigate if the microRNA (miRNA) pathway is required for dendritic cell (DC) development, we assessed the effect of ablating Drosha and Dicer, the two enzymes central to miRNA biogenesis.
Biogenesis and regulation of the let-7 miRNAs and their functional implications.
Lee et al., Taejŏn, South Korea. In Protein Cell, Oct 2015
To generate a let-7 miRNA, a primary transcript is produced by RNA polymerase II and then subsequently processed by Drosha/DGCR8, TUTase, and Dicer.
Distinct E-cadherin-based complexes regulate cell behaviour through miRNA processing or Src and p120 catenin activity.
Anastasiadis et al., Jacksonville, United States. In Nat Cell Biol, Sep 2015
Here, we resolve this apparent paradox by identifying two spatially and functionally distinct junctional complexes in non-transformed polarized epithelial cells: one growth suppressing at the apical zonula adherens (ZA), defined by the p120 partner PLEKHA7 and a non-nuclear subset of the core microprocessor components DROSHA and DGCR8, and one growth promoting at basolateral areas of cell-cell contact containing tyrosine-phosphorylated p120 and active Src.

Functional Anatomy of the Human Microprocessor.
Woo et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Cell, Jul 2015
MicroRNA (miRNA) maturation is initiated by Microprocessor composed of RNase III DROSHA and its cofactor DGCR8, whose fidelity is critical for generation of functional miRNAs.

DGCR8 HITS-CLIP reveals novel functions for the Microprocessor.
Cáceres et al., Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Nat Struct Mol Biol, 2012
DGCR8-mediated cleavage of snoRNAs was independent of Drosha, suggesting the involvement of DGCR8 in cellular complexes with other endonucleases. Binding of DGCR8 to cassette exons is a new mechanism for regulation of alternatively spliced isoforms.
