Identification of the factors that interact with NCBP, an 80 kDa nuclear cap binding protein.

Kataoka N., Ohno M., Moda I., Shimura Y.

It has been shown that the monomethylated cap structure plays important roles in pre-mRNA splicing and nuclear export of RNA. As a candidate for the factor involved in these nuclear events we have previously purified an 80 kDa nuclear cap binding protein (NCBP) from a HeLa cell nuclear extract and isolated its full-length cDNA. In this report, in order to obtain a clue to the cellular functions of NCBP, we attempted to identify a factor(s) that interacts with NCBP. Using the yeast two-hybrid system we isolated three clones from a HeLa cell cDNA library. We designated the proteins encoded by these clones NIPs (NCBP interacting proteins). NIP1 and NIP2 have an RNP consensus-type RNA binding domain, whereas NIP3 contains a unique domain of Arg-Glu or Lys-Glu dipeptide repeats. We also show that NCBP requires NIP1 for binding to the cap structure. Possible roles of NIPs in cap-dependent nuclear processes are discussed.
