Abstract
Ribonuclease inhibitor (RNH1) is a cytosolic protein that binds with femtomolar affinity to human ribonuclease 1 (RNase 1) and homologous secretory ribonucleases. RNH1 contains 32 cysteine residues and has been implicated as an antioxidant. Here, we use CRISPR-Cas9 to knock out RNH1 in HeLa cells. We find that cellular RNH1 affords marked protection from the lethal ribonucleolytic activity of RNase 1 but not from oxidants. We conclude that RNH1 protects cytosolic RNA from invading ribonucleases.
