Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Protein: ribonuclease E inhibitor protein B

Gene: rraB Accession Numbers: G7885 (EcoCyc), b4255, ECK4248

Synonyms: yjgD

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Regulation summary diagram for rraB

Subunit composition of ribonuclease E inhibitor protein B = [RraB]2
         ribonuclease E inhibitor protein B = RraB

RraB binds to the C-terminal half (CTH) of RNase E and interferes with the cleavage of a subset of RNase E target transcripts in vitro and in vivo. RraB interacts with RNase E at a distinct epitope within the CTH, while high-affinity binding of RraA, a second modulator of RNase E function, requires the CTH, but can not be mapped to a single epitope. Binding of RraA or RraB differently affect the composition of the degradosome [Gao06].

The regulatory interaction between RraB and RNase E and their orthologs appears to be evolutionarily conserved [Yeom08, Yeom08a]. RraB has been crystallized [Shen13a].

rraB is constitutively expressed [Zhou09b].
