    Classical RNA Recognition Motifs (RRMs) are one of the most abundant RNA binding domains, being present in over 400 copies in over 200 proteins in the human proteome alone. More divergent RRM domains are also found and their numbers are more difficult to estimate. RRM domains are present in proteins with different domain architectures, including many cases of apparent internal duplications. RRM domains have been extensively studied, being involved in splicing, cell differentiation control and other critical cell processes however not much is known about their evolution as a group. We started a project to analyze the evolution of the repertoire of RRM domains in eukaryotic genomes. We show that the last eukaryotic common ancestor (LECA) already had an extensive set of proteins with RRM domains representing a majority of architectures of such proteins seen in the today’s complex eukaryotes. This set expanded further by multiple independent rearrangements and duplications.

    One of the most common architecture of an RRM protein consists of a tandem RRM domain repeat (possibly accompanied by other domains, including other RRM domains). This architecture emerged independently several times during the eukaryotic evolution, including at least one example specific to primates. A preliminary viewer showing divergence in the mutual positions of the individual domains in the tandem repeat is shown here http://fatcat.burnham.org/rrm/ (you need to allow WebGL in your browser to view the page)
