RNA recognition motif 2 (RRM2) found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae protein HRB1, G-strand-binding protein 2 (GBP2) and similar proteins
The family includes Saccharomyces cerevisiae protein HRB1 (also called protein TOM34) and GBP2, both of which are SR-like mRNA-binding proteins which shuttle from the nucleus to the cytoplasm when bound to the mature mRNA molecules. They act as quality control factors for spliced mRNAs. GBP2, also called RAP1 localization factor 6, is a single-strand telomeric DNA-binding protein that binds single-stranded telomeric sequences of the type (TG[1-3])n in vitro. It also binds to RNA. GBP2 influences the localization of RAP1 in the nuclei and plays a role in modulating telomere length. Members in this family contain three RNA recognition motifs (RRMs), also termed RBDs (RNA binding domains) or RNPs (ribonucleoprotein domains). The model corresponds to the second RRM motif.
