Double-stranded RNA-binding protein 4 - Q8H1D4 (DRB4_ARATH)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q8H1D4: 3
Double-stranded RNA-binding protein involved in RNA-mediated post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS). Functions in the trans-acting small interfering RNAs (ta-siRNAs) biogenesis by binding and assisting DICER-LIKE 4 (DCL4). Required for DCL4 activity. Required for the 21 nucleotide ta-siRNAs production of the TAS3 transcript in leaves but not in flowers. Plays an important role in silencing RNA of both DNA and RNA viruses. Involved with argonaute 7 (AGO7) and RDR6 in turnip crinkle virus (TCV) silencing. May not be directly involved in viral siRNA production. May stabilize the 21 nucleotide viral siRNAs and deliver them to the RISC complex. Targeted by the viral silencing suppressor (VSR) transactivator/viroplasmin (TAV) protein of the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) that inactivates DRB4 function in RNA silencing. Probably not involved in the guide strand selection from RNA duplexes. Involved in leaf morphology through its function in ta-siRNA-mediated silencing. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
