RNA recognition motif in nucleolar protein interacting with the FHA domain of pKI-67 (NIFK) and similar proteins
This subgroup corresponds to the RRM of NIFK and Nop15p. NIFK, also termed MKI67 FHA domain-interacting nucleolar phosphoprotein, or nucleolar phosphoprotein Nopp34, is a putative RNA-binding protein interacting with the forkhead associated (FHA) domain of pKi-67 antigen in a mitosis-specific and phosphorylation-dependent manner. It is nucleolar in interphase but associates with condensed mitotic chromosomes. This family also includes Saccharomyces cerevisiae YNL110C gene encoding ribosome biogenesis protein 15 (Nop15p), also termed nucleolar protein 15. Both, NIFK and Nop15p, contain an RNA recognition motif (RRM), also termed RBD (RNA binding domain) or RNP (ribonucleoprotein domain).
