RNA-binding protein 8A - Q9Y5S9 (RBM8A_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Required for pre-mRNA splicing as component of the spliceosome (PubMed:28502770, PubMed:29301961). Core component of the splicing-dependent multiprotein exon junction complex (EJC) deposited at splice junctions on mRNAs. The EJC is a dynamic structure consisting of core proteins and several peripheral nuclear and cytoplasmic associated factors that join the complex only transiently either during EJC assembly or during subsequent mRNA metabolism. The EJC marks the position of the exon-exon junction in the mature mRNA for the gene expression machinery and the core components remain bound to spliced mRNAs throughout all stages of mRNA metabolism thereby influencing downstream processes including nuclear mRNA export, subcellular mRNA localization, translation efficiency and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD). The MAGOH-RBM8A heterodimer inhibits the ATPase activity of EIF4A3, thereby trapping the ATP-bound EJC core onto spliced mRNA in a stable conformation. The MAGOH-RBM8A heterodimer interacts with the EJC key regulator PYM1 leading to EJC disassembly in the cytoplasm and translation enhancement of EJC-bearing spliced mRNAs by recruiting them to the ribosomal 48S preinitiation complex. Its removal from cytoplasmic mRNAs requires translation initiation from EJC-bearing spliced mRNAs. Associates preferentially with mRNAs produced by splicing. Does not interact with pre-mRNAs, introns, or mRNAs produced from intronless cDNAs. Associates with both nuclear mRNAs and newly exported cytoplasmic mRNAs. The MAGOH-RBM8A heterodimer is a component of the nonsense mediated decay (NMD) pathway. Involved in the splicing modulation of BCL2L1/Bcl-X (and probably other apoptotic genes); specifically inhibits formation of proapoptotic isoforms such as Bcl-X(S); the function is different from the established EJC assembly.

Subunit Structure
Heterodimer with either MAGOH or MAGOHB (PubMed:10662555, PubMed:12730685, PubMed:23917022, PubMed:12781131). Part of the mRNA splicing-dependent exon junction complex (EJC) complex; the core complex contains CASC3, EIF4A3, MAGOH or MAGOHB, and RBM8A (PubMed:11707413, PubMed:16170325, PubMed:16314458, PubMed:23917022, PubMed:16923391, PubMed:16931718, PubMed:19033377, PubMed:20479275). Interacts with PYM1; the interaction is direct and dissociates the EJC from spliced mRNAs (PubMed:14968132, PubMed:18026120, PubMed:19410547). Part of a complex that contains the EJC core components CASC3, EIF4A3, MAGOH and RBM8A plus proteins involved in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay, such as UPF1, UPF2, UPF3A and UPF3B (PubMed:11546873, PubMed:12718880, PubMed:20479275). Found in a post-splicing complex with NXF1, MAGOH, UPF1, UPF2, UPF3A, UPF3B and RNPS1 (PubMed:11546874). Interacts with BAT1, MAGOH, DPH1, UPF3B, RNPS1, SRRM1 and ALYREF/THOC4 (PubMed:11013075, PubMed:11118221, PubMed:11707413, PubMed:12944400). Interacts with IPO13; the interaction mediates the nuclear import of the MAGOH-RBM8A heterodimer (PubMed:11447110). Identified in the spliceosome C complex (PubMed:11991638, PubMed:28502770, PubMed:29301961). Associates with polysomes (PubMed:12121612). UniProt

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
