Abstract
The YPT1/RAB1 protein, a key regulator of the intracellular vesicle transport in eukaryotes, is highly conserved in function and amino acid sequence. Here we report that the most highly conserved nucleotide sequence of the Rab1a gene of amniote vertebrates corresponds to the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) of the mRNA. Sequences of 27 species ranging from mammals to sauropsida are >91% identical in this region. Secondary structure prediction procedures applied to the 3'-UTR sequences between positions 750 and 984 and 1428 (mouse cDNA: Y00094), respectively, of the RAB1a mRNAs revealed families of alternative structures around nucleotide position 800 as recurrent features. The two hairpin loops are also predicted for marsupials, despite of their exceptional extension of the A-rich sequence in between. Yet, sequence conservation is much higher than required to conserve secondary structure. Implications for posttranscriptional regulation and protein binding are discussed.
