    The TIS11/tristetraprolin (TTP) CCCH tandem zinc finger proteins are major effectors in the destabilization of mRNAs bearing AU-rich elements (ARE) in their 3' untranslated regions. In this report, we demonstrate that the Drosophila melanogaster dTIS11 protein is short-lived due to its rapid ubiquitin-independent degradation by the proteasome. Our data indicate that this mechanism is tightly associated with the intrinsically unstructured, disordered N- and C-terminal domains of the protein. Furthermore, we show that TTP, the mammalian TIS11/TTP protein prototype, shares the same three-dimensional characteristics and is degraded by the same proteolytic pathway as dTIS11, thereby indicating that this mechanism has been conserved across evolution. Finally, we observed a phosphorylation-dependent inhibition of dTIS11 and TTP degradation by the proteasome in vitro, raising the possibility that such modifications directly affect proteasomal recognition for these proteins. As a group, RNA-binding proteins (RNA-BPs) have been described as enriched in intrinsically disordered regions, thus raising the possibility that the mechanism that we uncovered for TIS11/TTP turnover is widespread among other RNA-BPs.
