She2p is a RNA binding protein which binds to RNA via a helical hairpin. The protein is required for the actin dependent transport of ASH1 mRNA in yeast, a form of mRNP translocation. ASH1 mRNP requires recognition of zip code elements by the RNA binding protein She2p. She2p contains a globular domain consisting of a bundle of five alpha-helices [1].


This entry represents the main structural domain of She2.
