RNA recognition motif (RRM) found in SRA stem-loop-interacting RNA-binding protein (SLIRP) and similar proteins
This subfamily corresponds to the RRM of SLIRP, a widely expressed small steroid receptor RNA activator (SRA) binding protein, which binds to STR7, a functional substructure of SRA. SLIRP is localized predominantly to the mitochondria and plays a key role in modulating several nuclear receptor (NR) pathways. It functions as a co-repressor to repress SRA-mediated nuclear receptor coactivation. It modulates SHARP- and SKIP-mediated co-regulation of NR activity. SLIRP contains an RNA recognition motif (RRM), also termed RBD (RNA binding domain) or RNP (ribonucleoprotein domain), which is required for SLIRP's corepression activities.
