InterPro : IPR022711

Name  Ribonuclease Y, N-terminal Short Name  RNase_Y_N
Type  Domain Description  This domain is found at the N terminus of ribonuclease Y. RNase Y from Bacillus subtilis is the functional equivalent of RNase E from Escherichia coli, even though the two enzymes do not share any sequence similarity. It is involved in the initiation of RNA degradation, interacting with other proteins in a degradosome-like complex []. In contrast to B. subtilis, the RNase Y homologue (rny/cvfA) of Staphylococcus aureus is not essential for growth, but plays a major role in virulence gene regulation [].RNase Y has two central KH and HD domains []. A coiled-coil domain with the potential to form a leucine zipper has been proposed for residues 30 to 150 at the N terminus [].
