RS-proteins are a class of proteins that contribute to light-activated gene regulation (via an alternative splicing mechanism) in plant morphogenesis. It has been hypothesized that liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) plays an important role for the regulation mechanism. Studying these proteins is challenging because they contain both intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) - which presumably control the LLPS - as well as folded domains that contain the functionally important RNA binding sites. Here we use and compare different coarse-grained models to study the condensation and phase behavior of RS proteins: Commonly used IDP models [1,2] as well as the structure predictive UNRES model [3]. We specifically focus on the on the single-chain conformations, phase behavior and the accessibility of RNA binding site.
