Bud27 and its human orthologue URI (unconventional prefoldin RPB5-interactor) are members of the prefoldin (PFD) family of ATP-independent molecular chaperones binding the Rpb5 subunit to all three nuclear eukaryotic RNA polymerases (RNA pols). Bud27/URI are considered to function as a scaffold protein able to assemble additional members of the prefoldin (PDF) family in both human and yeast. Bud27 and URI are not subunits of the canonical PFD/GimC complex and not only the composition but also other functions independent of the PFD/GimC complex have been described for Bud27 and URI. Bud27 interacts only with Pfd6 but no other components of the R2TP/PFDL. Furthermore previously reported interaction between Bud27 and Pfd2 was not later confirmed. These results point to major differences in the prefoldin-like complex composition between yeast and other organisms, suggesting also important differences in functions. Furthermore, this assumption could be extended to the R2TP/PFDL complex, which has been shown to differ between different organisms and has not been identified in yeast. This casts doubt on whether Bud27 cooperation with prefoldin and other components of the R2TP/PFDL modules are required for its action. This could be extended to URI and point to a role of Bud27/URI in cell functions more relevant than this previously proposed as co-prefoldin.
