    basic FUNCTION
  • methyltransferase activity
  • nucleolar protein functionally linked to GAR1 and involved in pre-rRNA cleavage at site A2 (Bousquet-Antonelli 2000)
  • nucleolar protein, important for mediating the assembly of the energy-dependent nucleolar silencing complex (eNoSC), which also contains SIRT1 and SUV39H1
  • RRP8 complex promotes rDNA heterochromatin formation and represses rRNA transcription
  • is required for the N(1)-methyladenosine (m(1)A) modification in 28S rRNAs of human cells
  • also contributes to 60S ribosomal subunit formation

    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • NMNAT1 interacts with the nucleolar repressor protein RRP8 and is involved in regulating rRNA transcription
  • RRP8-SIRT1 interaction was competitively inhibited by rRNA
  • RRP8-mediated rRNA base methylation links ribosomal subunit formation to cell proliferation in a TP53-dependent manner
