Other interactions of MRD1

  • Mrd1p associates with the 35 S precursor rRNA (pre-rRNA) and U3 small nucleolar RNAs and is necessary for the initial processing at the A(0)-A(2) cleavage sites in pre-rRNA [1].


  1. Mrd1p is required for processing of pre-rRNA and for maintenance of steady-state levels of 40 S ribosomal subunits in yeast. Jin, S.B., Zhao, J., Bjork, P., Schmekel, K., Ljungdahl, P.O., Wieslander, L. J. Biol. Chem. (2002) [Pubmed]
  2. RBD-1, a nucleolar RNA-binding protein, is essential for Caenorhabditis elegans early development through 18S ribosomal RNA processing. Saijou, E., Fujiwara, T., Suzaki, T., Inoue, K., Sakamoto, H. Nucleic Acids Res. (2004) [Pubmed]
