A cDNA encoding a 284 residue long type A/B hnRNP protein has been cloned. This protein, previously referred to as type C [(1987) J. Biol. Chem. 262, 17126-17137], is an RNA unwinding protein from HeLa 40S hnRNP with a high affinity for G- followed by U-rich sequences. The N-terminal part of the protein contains two consensus RNA binding domains present in a number of other RNA binding proteins. The C-terminal part is glycine-rich and contains a potential ATP/GTP binding loop. The distribution of charged amino acids is highly uneven and there are multiple potential phosphorylation sites.
