Name  RNA-binding S4 domain Short Name  S4_RNA-bd
Type  Domain Description  The S4 domain is a small domain consisting of 60-65 amino acid residuesthat was detected in the bacterial ribosomal protein S4, eukaryoticribosomal S9, two families of pseudouridine synthases, a novel familyof predicted RNA methylases, a yeast protein containing a pseudouridinesynthetase and a deaminase domain, bacterial tyrosyl-tRNA synthetases,and a number of uncharacterised, small proteins that may be involved intranslation regulation []. The S4 domain probably mediates binding to RNA [].
