Regulation summary diagram for rnr

RNase R is a ribonuclease that has been implicated in rRNA maturation, mRNA degradation during stationary phase, degradation of polyadenylated mRNAs, and tmRNA-mediated degradation of non-stop mRNAs.

RNase R is a processive 3' to 5' exoribonuclease that releases 5'-nucleoside monophosphates, producing limit end products of di- and trinucleotides. Although it can cleave several RNA substrates, it shows greatest activity toward rRNA [Cheng02b]. Unlike RNase II, RNase R is able to digest double-stranded RNA as long as a single-stranded region at the 3' end is available; it was shown that RNase R is involved in the decay of structured mRNAs [Cheng05]. The C-terminal S1 domain does not appear to be responsible for this ability [Amblar07], while the nuclease domain is sufficient for degradation of double-stranded RNA [Vincent09]. A 3' overhang of at least 7 nucleotides is required for RNase R binding and activity; the structure of the 3' sugar residue only plays a small role in substrate recognition [Vincent06]. The enzyme does not bind or degrade single-stranded DNA [Vincent06].

RNase R contains two N-terminal cold shock domains (CSDs) which appear to play a role in substrate recruitment, a central nuclease (RNB) domain, followed by an S1 domain that may position substrates for efficient catalysis, and a C-terminal basic domain [Vincent09]. The CSDs, especially CSD2, is responsible for an RNA helicase activity that is independent of the RNase activity of the protein and that is required for complementation of the cold-shock function of CsdA [Awano10]. The Asp280 residue in the RNB domain is required for RNase activity, but is not involved in substrate binding [Matos09], while Arg572 is required for degradation of structured RNA [Vincent09a]. Tyr324 [Matos09] and Arg572 [Vincent09a] influences the length of the final degradation product. Both CSDs and the S1 domain function as RNA-binding domains and are responsible for the selective degradation of double-stranded RNA substrates containing a single-stranded 3' overhang of five or more nucleotides [Matos09]. Swapping the S1 and RNB domains from RNase R into an RNase II context enables the degradation of ds RNA substrates and the appearance of the 2 nt final degradation product [Matos11].

RNase R appears to be specifically involved in the maturation of tmRNA, a small RNA involved in rescue of stalled ribosomes, at low growth temperatures [Cairrao03], and in the tmRNA-mediated degradation of non-stop mRNAs [Richards06a]. Targeted non-stop mRNA decay requires interaction with SmpB/tmRNA and engagement with the stalled ribosome and involves the C-terminal basic domain of RNase R [Ge10]. RNase R also decreases ompA mRNA stability at stationary phase [Andrade06] and degrades oligoadenylated rpsO mRNA [Andrade09].

RNase R is involved in the degradation of ribosomal RNA both during starvation and for ribosomal quality control [Basturea11].

RNase R levels are induced 7- to 8-fold by cold shock, mainly as a result of increased mRNA stability. PNPase is involved in regulating RNase R levels [Cairrao03]. RNase R is also induced during entry into stationary phase and starvation [Chen05a, Andrade06]. Maturation of the operon mRNA containing rnr and RNase R levels are dependent on RNase E [Cairrao06]. RNase R levels are slightly increased at high temperatures and ~5-fold increased at high temperatures in an RNase E mutant [Andrade09]. The RNase R protein is highly unstable during exponential growth; the protein is stabilized in stationary phase and under cold shock and minimal media growth conditions, accounting for increased RNase R levels despite decreased levels of rnr mRNA [Chen10b]. The trans-translation system (tmRNA and SmpB) is responsible for the short half life of RNase R during exponential growth via its interactions with the C-terminal domains of RNase R [Liang10]. During exponential phase, Lys544 is acetylated by Pka, resulting in tighter binding of tmRNA-SmpB to RNase R followed by proteolytic degradation [Liang11b]. tmRNA-SmpB stimulates binding of the proteases HslUV and Lon to the N terminus of RNase R [Liang12]. Pka is not present in late exponential and stationary phase, resulting in increased stability of newly synthesized RNase R [Liang12a].

VacB (later shown to be identical to RNase R [Cheng98]) of enteroinvasive E. coli, Shigella flexneri, and other Shigella is important for the virulence of these organisms [Tobe92].

An rnr mutant has a growth defect during growth at low temperatures [Cairrao03]. An rnr pnp double mutant is not viable [Cheng98] and accumulates high levels of mRNAs containing REP sequences [Cheng05]. Overexpression of RNase R complements the cold-sensitive phenotype of a deaD mutant [Awano07], but not that of a pnp mutant [Awano08]. Overexpression of RNase R rescues the growth defect of a Δrph Δpnp mutant [Jain09a].
