Paralogs (30.6 %) ;  |  Homologs in   Hemiascomycota (94.8 %);  Basidiomycota (43.4 %);  Fungi (94.8 %);  Eukaryota (94.8 %);  Plants (38.7 %);  Mammalia (38.3 %);  Human (37.2 %);  Bacteria (23.4 %);  All except yeast (94.8 %)

  • similarity to Mtr4p and human helicase SKI2W
  • has 62% identity to human homolog hSki2p
  • belongs to the SKI2 subfamily
  • member of a subfamily of RNA helicase-related proteins that includes Brr2p and Hfm1p
Functional Classification:
    ..nucleotide/nucleoside/nucleobase metabolism
    ....polynucleotide degradation
    ......RNA degradation | 51 Entries | Evi | PUBMED
Localization:  SKI2 localization details
  • cytoplasm
  • nucleus
  • nucleus
  • essential in kem1 null mutant cells, suggesting that both proteins are involved in prevention of translation of transcripts targeted for degradation
  • expression of gag and gag-pol from a cDNA clone eliminates L-A dsRNA virus, but not in ski2 mutants, probably because of higher copy number of dsRNA replicons in mutant
  • human homolog hSki2p is a nucleolar protein
  • has glycine-arginine-rich (GAR) region typical of nucleolar proteins
  • has all six motifs that define the RNA and DNA helicase superfamily
Phenotypes:  Disruption: SKI2 details
  • viable
  • ski2 kem1 double mutants arrest at START
  • mutant suppresses most MAK mutations by derepressing translation of non-poly(A) mRNA, including L-A mRNA
  • ski2-2 can suppress mak7-1, but does not restore level of 60S ribosomal subunits to normal
  • dominant alleles of RAT1 can bypass suppress the inviability of xrn1 ski2 mutants | PUBMED
