The KH domain occurs in a diverse set of RNA-binding proteins that include the antiterminator NusA and is probably involved in binding to nucleic acid.

New findings are presented for the approximately 50 residue KH motif, a domain recently discovered in RNA-binding proteins. The conserved sequence is approximately 10 residues larger than previously reported. Profile searches have revealed new members of this family, including two, E. coli NusA and human GAP-associated p62 phosphoprotein, for which RNA-binding data exists. A nusA homolog was detected in the RNA polymerase gene complex of six archaebacterial species and may encode an antiterminator. All KH-containing proteins are linked with RNA and the KH motif most probably functions as a nucleic acid binding domain.
