Ares R1D1 has no cleavage activity of RNase III, a common feature in most RNA-degrading enzymes. The lack of RNase III cleavage activity is likely attributed to structural changes in R1D1 compared to its closely related counterpart RTL2. The changes disrupt essential residue positions and constrain the dsRBD’s organization. The reason for this asymmetry is unknown.
