Abstract


Rrp5p is a trans-acting factor important for biogenesis of both the 40S and 60S subunit of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae ribosome. The protein contains 12 tandemly repeated S1 RNA binding motifs in its N-terminal region, suggesting the ability to interact directly with the pre-rRNA. In vitro binding studies, using immunopurified Rrp5p and in vitro transcribed, 32P-UTP-labeled RNA fragments, revealed that Rrp5p is a general RNA-binding protein with a strong preference for single-stranded sequences rich in uridines. Co-immunoprecipitation studies in yeast cells expressing ProtA-tagged Rrp5p showed that the protein is still associated with pre-ribosomal particles containing 27SA2 pre-rRNA but not with particles containing the 27SB precursor. Thus, Rrp5p appears to dissociate from the 66S pre-ribosome upon or immediately after further processing of 27SA2 pre-rRNA, suggesting the presence of (an) important binding site(s) within the 3'-terminal portion of ITS1. The location of these possible binding site(s) was further delimited using rrp2-1 mutant cells, which accumulate the 5'-extended 5.8S pre-rRNA species. The results indicate that association of Rrp5p with the pre-ribosome is abolished upon removal of a 30-nt region downstream from site A2, which contains two short, single-stranded U stretches. Sequence comparison shows that only the most 5' of these two U-rich stretches is conserved among yeast species whose ITS1 can functionally replace the S. cerevisiae spacer. The implications for the role of Rrp5p in yeast ribosome biogenesis are discussed.
