Endoribonuclease L-PSP Provide feedback
Endoribonuclease active on single-stranded mRNA. Inhibits protein synthesis by cleavage of mRNA . Previously thought to inhibit protein synthesis initiation . This protein may also be involved in the regulation of purine biosynthesis . YjgF (renamed RidA) family members are enamine/imine deaminases. They hydrolyze reactive intermediates released by PLP-dependent enzymes, including threonine dehydratase . YjgF also prevents inhibition of transaminase B (IlvE) in Salmonella .

The YjgF/Yer057p/UK114 family is a large, highly conserved, and widely distributed family of proteins found in bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes. Proteins in this family are functionally diverse and are involved in variety of enzymatic and non-enzymatic functions, an example of minimalistic changes leading to functional diversification. This family includes:
- the hypothetical E.coli protein YjgF and its orthologues
- the yeast growth inhibitor YER057cp that appears to play a role in the regulation of metabolic pathways and cell differentiation [PUBMED:11442631]
- the mammalian 14.5 kDa translational inhibitor protein UK114, also known as L-PSP (liver perchloric acid-soluble protein), with endoribonucleolytic activity that directly affects mRNA translation and can induce disaggregation of the reticulocyte polysomes into 80 S ribosomes [PUBMED:10400702]
- RutC from E. coli, which is essential for growth on uracil as sole nitrogen source and is thought to reduce aminoacrylate peracid to aminoacrylate [PUBMED:20400551]
- YabJ from B. subtilis, which is required for adenine-mediated repression of purine biosynthetic genes [PUBMED:10557275]

This superfamily is characterised by proteins that form trimers with three closely packed beta-sheets. Some member proteins are chorismate mutases, others are endoribonucleases active on single-stranded mRNA. It is the highly conserved YjgF/YER057c/UK114 protein superfamily. Homologues of this protein occur in eubacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes. Proteins are functionally diverse and are involved in a variety of enzymatic and non-enzymatic functions. The high sequence and structural similarity between members of this protein superfamily offer an example of minimalistic changes leading to functional diversification. This feature is best exemplified by the three close homologues of YjgF proteins in mammals (human, rat, and goat) with sequence identity better than 85%. These homologues perform different functions, including tumour antigen activity in the goat homologue, translation inhibition in the human and rat homologues (hp14.5 and rp14.5), endoribonuclease activity in rp14.5, calpain activation in the bovine homologue, molecular chaperone activity in DUK114, and involvement in the regulation of purine and removal of toxic metabolites in YjgF7, and involvement in isoleucine biosynthetic pathways (YjgF, YER057c, Ibm1). In addition, members of this protein family have also been shown to regulate mitochondrial maintenance (Ibm1) in yeast. Proteins from the YjgF family in plants are involved in photosynthesis and chromoplastogenesis (CHRD).
The clan contains the following 3 members:CM_1 Ribonuc_L-PSP YjgF_endoribonc
We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request

You can use the tree controls to manipulate how the interactive tree is displayed:
- show/hide the summary boxes

There is 1 interaction for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the Ribonuc_L-PSP domain has been found. There are 187 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
