A New Double-Stranded RNA Binding Protein (DRBP-120) Is Associated with Double-Stranded RNA-Activated Protein Kinase (PKR)
Double-stranded RNA-activated protein kinase (PKR) plays an important role in interferon-induced antiviral responses, and is also involved in intracellular signaling pathways, including the apoptosis, proliferation, and transcription pathways. In this study, a new 120-kDa PKR-associated protein designated double-stranded RNA binding protein (DRBP)-120 was identified using co-immunoprecipitation with anti-PKR antiserum and two-dimensional electrophoresis. Furthermore, DRBP-120 is a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-binding protein, and it was detected in both the cytoplasm and the nucleus of HeLa cells associated with PKR.
