A 37 kDa binding polypeptide accumulates in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) extracts from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) patients and is being considered as a potential diagnostic marker (1). We establish here that this low molecular weight 2-5A binding polypeptide is a truncated form of the native 2-5A dependent ribonuclease L (RNase L), generated by an increased proteolytic activity in CFS PBMC extracts. RNase L proteolysis in CFS PBMC extracts can be mimicked in a model system in which recombinant RNase L is treated with human leukocyte elastase (HLE). RNase L proteolysis leads to the accumulation of two major fragments with molecular weights of 37 and 30 kDa.

The 37 kDa fragment includes the 2-5A binding site and the N-terminal end of native RNase L. The 30 kDa fragment includes the catalytic site in the C-terminal part of RNase L. Interestingly, RNase L remains active and 2-5A dependent when degraded into its 30 kDa and 37 kDa fragments by proteases of CFS PBMC extract or by purified HLE. The 2-5A dependent nuclease activity of the truncated RNase L could result from the association of these digestion products, as suggested in pull down experiments.
