Abstract (English)

Argonaute (Ago) proteins interact with small non-coding RNAs, which guide them to complementary target RNAs to mediate gene silencing. The domain organization of Ago proteins clearly reflects their function. The ends of the small RNA are bound by the Mid and PAZ domains and the structure of the PIWI domain closely resembles that of the endonuclease RNase H. Indeed, some Ago proteins can cleave ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Argonaute-(Ago-)Proteine interagieren mit kleinen, nicht-codierenden RNAs, welche sie zu komplementären Ziel-RNAs leiten, um Genrepression zu vermitteln. Die Domänenorganisation von Ago-Proteinen spiegelt deren Funktion deutlich wider. Die Enden der kleinen RNA werden durch die Mid- und PAZ-Domänen gebunden und die Struktur der PIWI-Domäne ähnelt stark der der Endonuklease RNase H. Tatsächlich ...
