RNA recognition motif 2 (RRM2) found in Drosophila RNA-binding protein Fusilli and similar proteins
This subgroup corresponds to the RRM2 of RNA-binding protein Fusilli which is encoded by Drosophila fusilli (fus) gene. Loss of Fusilli activity causes lethality during embryogenesis in flies. Drosophila Fusilli can regulate endogenous fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) splicing and functions as a splicing factor. Fusilli contains three RNA recognition motifs (RRMs), also termed RBDs (RNA binding domains) or RNPs (ribonucleoprotein domains), an N-terminal domain with unknown function and a C-terminal domain particularly rich in alanine, glutamine, and serine.
