All of the divisions of the natural sciences dealing with the various aspects of the phenomena of life and vital processes. The concept includes anatomy and physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, and the biology of animals, plants, and microorganisms. It should be differentiated from BIOLOGY, one of its subdivisions, concerned specifically with the origin and life processes of living organisms.
Injuries to DNA that introduce deviations from its normal, intact structure and which may, if left unrepaired, result in a MUTATION or a block of DNA REPLICATION. These deviations may be caused by physical or chemical agents and occur by natural or unnatural, introduced circumstances. They include the introduction of illegitimate bases during replication or by deamination or other modification of bases; the loss of a base from the DNA backbone leaving an abasic site; single-strand breaks; double strand breaks; and intrastrand (PYRIMIDINE DIMERS) or interstrand crosslinking. Damage can often be repaired (DNA REPAIR). If the damage is extensive, it can induce APOPTOSIS.
The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
An increased tendency of the GENOME to acquire MUTATIONS when various processes involved in maintaining and replicating the genome are dysfunctional.

JNK2 is required for efficient T-cell activation and apoptosis but not for normal lymphocyte development. (1/7106)

BACKGROUND: The Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling pathway has been implicated in cell proliferation and apoptosis, but its function seems to depend on the cell type and inducing signal. In T cells, JNK has been implicated in both antigen-induced activation and apoptosis. RESULTS: We generated mice lacking the JNK2 isozymes. The mutant mice were healthy and fertile but defective in peripheral T-cell activation induced by antibody to the CD3 component of the T-cell receptor (TCR) complex - proliferation and production of interleukin-2 (IL-2), IL-4 and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) were reduced. The proliferation defect was restored by exogenous IL-2. B-cell activation was normal in the absence of JNK2. Activation-induced peripheral T-cell apoptosis was comparable between mutant and wild-type mice, but immature (CD4(+) CD8(+)) thymocytes lacking JNK2 were resistant to apoptosis induced by administration of anti-CD3 antibody in vivo. The lack of JNK2 also resulted in partial resistance of thymocytes to anti-CD3 antibody in vitro, but had little or no effect on apoptosis induced by anti-Fas antibody, dexamethasone or ultraviolet-C (UVC) radiation. CONCLUSIONS: JNK2 is essential for efficient activation of peripheral T cells but not B cells. Peripheral T-cell activation is probably required indirectly for induction of thymocyte apoptosis resulting from administration of anti-CD3 antibody in vivo. JNK2 functions in a cell-type-specific and stimulus-dependent manner, being required for apoptosis of immature thymocytes induced by anti-CD3 antibody but not for apoptosis induced by anti-Fas antibody, UVC or dexamethasone. JNK2 is not required for activation-induced cell death of mature T cells.  (+info)

In vivo expression of the nucleolar group I intron-encoded I-dirI homing endonuclease involves the removal of a spliceosomal intron. (2/7106)

The Didymium iridis DiSSU1 intron is located in the nuclear SSU rDNA and has an unusual twin-ribozyme organization. One of the ribozymes (DiGIR2) catalyses intron excision and exon ligation. The other ribozyme (DiGIR1), which along with the endonuclease-encoding I-DirI open reading frame (ORF) is inserted in DiGIR2, carries out hydrolysis at internal processing sites (IPS1 and IPS2) located at its 3' end. Examination of the in vivo expression of DiSSU1 shows that after excision, DiSSU1 is matured further into the I-DirI mRNA by internal DiGIR1-catalysed cleavage upstream of the ORF 5' end, as well as truncation and polyadenylation downstream of the ORF 3' end. A spliceosomal intron, the first to be reported within a group I intron and the rDNA, is removed before the I-DirI mRNA associates with the polysomes. Taken together, our results imply that DiSSU1 uses a unique combination of intron-supplied ribozyme activity and adaptation to the general RNA polymerase II pathway of mRNA expression to allow a protein to be produced from the RNA polymerase I-transcribed rDNA.  (+info)

The splicing factor-associated protein, p32, regulates RNA splicing by inhibiting ASF/SF2 RNA binding and phosphorylation. (3/7106)

The cellular protein p32 was isolated originally as a protein tightly associated with the essential splicing factor ASF/SF2 during its purification from HeLa cells. ASF/SF2 is a member of the SR family of splicing factors, which stimulate constitutive splicing and regulate alternative RNA splicing in a positive or negative fashion, depending on where on the pre-mRNA they bind. Here we present evidence that p32 interacts with ASF/SF2 and SRp30c, another member of the SR protein family. We further show that p32 inhibits ASF/SF2 function as both a splicing enhancer and splicing repressor protein by preventing stable ASF/SF2 interaction with RNA, but p32 does not block SRp30c function. ASF/SF2 is highly phosphorylated in vivo, a modification required for stable RNA binding and protein-protein interaction during spliceosome formation, and this phosphorylation, either through HeLa nuclear extracts or through specific SR protein kinases, is inhibited by p32. Our results suggest that p32 functions as an ASF/SF2 inhibitory factor, regulating ASF/SF2 RNA binding and phosphorylation. These findings place p32 into a new group of proteins that control RNA splicing by sequestering an essential RNA splicing factor into an inhibitory complex.  (+info)

Tight binding of the 5' exon to domain I of a group II self-splicing intron requires completion of the intron active site. (4/7106)

Group II self-splicing requires the 5' exon to form base pairs with two stretches of intronic sequence (EBS1 and EBS2) which also bind the DNA target during retrotransposition of the intron. We have used dimethyl sulfate modification of bases to obtain footprints of the 5' exon on intron Pl.LSU/2 from the mitochondrion of the alga Pylaiella littoralis, as well as on truncated intron derivatives. Aside from the EBS sites, which are part of the same subdomain (ID) of ribozyme secondary structure, three distant adenines become either less or more sensitive to modification in the presence of the exon. Unexpectedly, one of these adenines in subdomain IC1 is footprinted only in the presence of the distal helix of domain V, which is involved in catalysis. While the loss of that footprint is accompanied by a 100-fold decrease in the affinity for the exon, both protection from modification and efficient binding can be restored by a separate domain V transcript, whose binding results in its own, concise footprint on domains I and III. Possible biological implications of the need for the group II active site to be complete in order to observe high-affinity binding of the 5' exon to domain I are discussed.  (+info)

A premature termination codon interferes with the nuclear function of an exon splicing enhancer in an open reading frame-dependent manner. (5/7106)

Premature translation termination codon (PTC)-mediated effects on nuclear RNA processing have been shown to be associated with a number of human genetic diseases; however, how these PTCs mediate such effects in the nucleus is unclear. A PTC at nucleotide (nt) 2018 that lies adjacent to the 5' element of a bipartite exon splicing enhancer within the NS2-specific exon of minute virus of mice P4 promoter-generated pre-mRNA caused a decrease in the accumulated levels of P4-generated R2 mRNA relative to P4-generated R1 mRNA, although the total accumulated levels of P4 product remained the same. This effect was seen in nuclear RNA and was independent of RNA stability. The 5' and 3' elements of the bipartite NS2-specific exon enhancer are redundant in function, and when the 2018 PTC was combined with a deletion of the 3' enhancer element, the exon was skipped in the majority of the viral P4-generated product. Such exon skipping in response to a PTC, but not a missense mutation at nt 2018, could be suppressed by frame shift mutations in either exon of NS2 which reopened the NS2 open reading frame, as well as by improvement of the upstream intron 3' splice site. These results suggest that a PTC can interfere with the function of an exon splicing enhancer in an open reading frame-dependent manner and that the PTC is recognized in the nucleus.  (+info)

Substrate specificities of SR proteins in constitutive splicing are determined by their RNA recognition motifs and composite pre-mRNA exonic elements. (6/7106)

We report striking differences in the substrate specificities of two human SR proteins, SF2/ASF and SC35, in constitutive splicing. beta-Globin pre-mRNA (exons 1 and 2) is spliced indiscriminately with either SR protein. Human immunodeficiency virus tat pre-mRNA (exons 2 and 3) and immunoglobulin mu-chain (IgM) pre-mRNA (exons C3 and C4) are preferentially spliced with SF2/ASF and SC35, respectively. Using in vitro splicing with mutated or chimeric derivatives of the tat and IgM pre-mRNAs, we defined specific combinations of segments in the downstream exons, which mediate either positive or negative effects to confer SR protein specificity. A series of recombinant chimeric proteins consisting of domains of SF2/ASF and SC35 in various combinations was used to localize trans-acting domains responsible for substrate specificity. The RS domains of SF2/ASF and SC35 can be exchanged without effect on substrate specificity. The RNA recognition motifs (RRMs) of SF2/ASF are active only in the context of a two-RRM structure, and RRM2 has a dominant role in substrate specificity. In contrast, the single RRM of SC35 can function alone, but its substrate specificity can be influenced by the presence of an additional RRM. The RRMs behave as modules that, when present in different combinations, can have positive, neutral, or negative effects on splicing, depending upon the specific substrate. We conclude that SR protein-specific recognition of specific positive and negative pre-mRNA exonic elements via one or more RRMs is a crucial determinant of the substrate specificity of SR proteins in constitutive splicing.  (+info)

Alterations in the conserved SL1 trans-spliced leader of Caenorhabditis elegans demonstrate flexibility in length and sequence requirements in vivo. (7/7106)

Approximately 70% of mRNAs in Caenorhabditis elegans are trans spliced to conserved 21- to 23-nucleotide leader RNAs. While the function of SL1, the major C. elegans trans-spliced leader, is unknown, SL1 RNA, which contains this leader, is essential for embryogenesis. Efforts to characterize in vivo requirements of the SL1 leader sequence have been severely constrained by the essential role of the corresponding DNA sequences in SL1 RNA transcription. We devised a heterologous expression system that circumvents this problem, making it possible to probe the length and sequence requirements of the SL1 leader without interfering with its transcription. We report that expression of SL1 from a U2 snRNA promoter rescues mutants lacking the SL1-encoding genes and that the essential embryonic function of SL1 is retained when approximately one-third of the leader sequence and/or the length of the leader is significantly altered. In contrast, although all mutant SL1 RNAs were well expressed, more severe alterations eliminate this essential embryonic function. The one non-rescuing mutant leader tested was never detected on messages, demonstrating that part of the leader sequence is essential for trans splicing in vivo. Thus, in spite of the high degree of SL1 sequence conservation, its length, primary sequence, and composition are not critical parameters of its essential embryonic function. However, particular nucleotides in the leader are essential for the in vivo function of the SL1 RNA, perhaps for its assembly into a functional snRNP or for the trans-splicing reaction.  (+info)

A novel genetic screen for snRNP assembly factors in yeast identifies a conserved protein, Sad1p, also required for pre-mRNA splicing. (8/7106)

The assembly pathway of spliceosomal snRNPs in yeast is poorly understood. We devised a screen to identify mutations blocking the assembly of newly synthesized U4 snRNA into a functional snRNP. Fifteen mutant strains failing either to accumulate the newly synthesized U4 snRNA or to assemble a U4/U6 particle were identified and categorized into 13 complementation groups. Thirteen previously identified splicing-defective prp mutants were also assayed for U4 snRNP assembly defects. Mutations in the U4/U6 snRNP components Prp3p, Prp4p, and Prp24p led to disassembly of the U4/U6 snRNP particle and degradation of the U6 snRNA, while prp17-1 and prp19-1 strains accumulated free U4 and U6 snRNA. A detailed analysis of a newly identified mutant, the sad1-1 mutant, is presented. In addition to having the snRNP assembly defect, the sad1-1 mutant is severely impaired in splicing at the restrictive temperature: the RP29 pre-mRNA strongly accumulates and splicing-dependent production of beta-galactosidase from reporter constructs is abolished, while extracts prepared from sad1-1 strains fail to splice pre-mRNA substrates in vitro. The sad1-1 mutant is the only splicing-defective mutant analyzed whose mutation preferentially affects assembly of newly synthesized U4 snRNA into the U4/U6 particle. SAD1 encodes a novel protein of 52 kDa which is essential for cell viability. Sad1p localizes to the nucleus and is not stably associated with any of the U snRNAs. Sad1p contains a putative zinc finger and is phylogenetically highly conserved, with homologues identified in human, Caenorhabditis elegans, Arabidospis, and Drosophila.  (+info)

We recently reported that spliceosomes alter messenger ribonucleoprotein particle (mRNP) composition by depositing several proteins 20-24 nucleotides upstream of mRNA exon-exon junctions.

Four separate CETP gene mutations have been published previously. Of the four mutations, the intron 14 donor splice site mutation4 and the Asp442-to-Gly mutation in exon 1528 are both known to be very common in the Japanese population.7 8 9 10 29 The other two mutations, the Gln309-to-Stop mutation in exon 1026 and a 1-bp insertion in intron 14,7 are probably sporadic mutations. Except for the Asp442-to-Gly mutation that causes partial CETP deficiency, the other three seemed to have null allelic effects, although exact mechanisms underlying the null effects have not been studied. In the present study, we demonstrated that the primary abnormality due to the intron 14 donor splice site mutation is the exon skipping of mRNA, which decreases the level of mRNA and produces a truncated protein that should be degraded intracellularly. These observations clearly explain the molecular basis of the complete CETP deficiency found not only in patients with the common intron 14 splicing mutation but also in ...

Somatically acquired mutations in components of the RNA processing pathway in CLL. Presented is an overview illustrating the individual components of the RNA-processing pathway, with those components identified as being somatically mutated highlighted (*) and the mutated protein listed in red. Initially, nascent pre-mRNA transcripts undergo 5′ capping and binding of the cap-binding complex (CBC), followed by the formation of the major spliceosome, the machinery responsible for the removal of pre-mRNA introns via a stepwise mechanism. Initial assembly steps include formation of pre-spliceosome complex A (top left nuclear complex) involving recognition of the 5′ splice site by U1 snRNP (an interaction stabilized by members of the serine-arginine-rich (SR) protein family) and recognition of the 3′ SS region by the U2 Auxiliary factor U2AF and by U2snRNP. U2AF binds to the intronic polypyrimidine tract and 3′SS, and facilitates binding of U2 snRNP to the branch-point sequence. Stable U2 ...
DNA- and RNA binding protein, involved in several nuclear processes. Essential pre-mRNA splicing factor required early in spliceosome formation and for splicing catalytic step II, probably as a heteromer with NONO. Binds to pre-mRNA in spliceosome C complex, and specifically binds to intronic polypyrimidine tracts. Involved in regulation of signal-induced alternative splicing. During splicing of PTPRC/CD45, a phosphorylated form is sequestered by THRAP3 from the pre-mRNA in resting T-cells; T-cell activation and subsequent reduced phosphorylation is proposed to lead to release from THRAP3 allowing binding to pre-mRNA splicing regulatotry elements which represses exon inclusion. Interacts with U5 snRNA, probably by binding to a purine-rich sequence located on the 3 side of U5 snRNA stem 1b. May be involved in a pre-mRNA coupled splicing and polyadenylation process as component of a snRNP-free complex with SNRPA/U1A. The SFPQ-NONO heteromer associated with MATR3 may play a role in nuclear ...

Plays a role in preventing exon skipping, ensuring the accuracy of splicing and regulating alternative splicing. Interacts with other spliceosomal components, via the RS domains, to form a bridge between the 5- and 3-splice site binding components, U1 snRNP and U2AF. Can stimulate binding of U1 snRNP to a 5-splice site-containing pre-mRNA. Binds to purine-rich RNA sequences, either the octamer, 5-RGAAGAAC-3 (r=A or G) or the decamers, AGGACAGAGC/AGGACGAAGC. Binds preferentially to the 5-CGAGGCG-3 motif in vitro. Three copies of the octamer constitute a powerful splicing enhancer in vitro, the ASF/SF2 splicing enhancer (ASE) which can specifically activate ASE-dependent splicing. Isoform ASF-2 and isoform ASF-3 act as splicing repressors. May function as export adapter involved in mRNA nuclear export through the TAP/NXF1 pathway ...
This sequence change falls in intron 14 of the PNKP gene. It does not directly change the encoded amino acid sequence of the PNKP protein, but it affects a nucleotide within the consensus splice site of the intron. This variant is present in population databases (rs776617733, ExAC 0.04%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with PNKP-related conditions. Nucleotide substitutions within the consensus splice site are a relatively common cause of aberrant splicing (PMID: 17576681, 9536098). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on RNA splicing suggest that this variant is not likely to affect RNA splicing, but this prediction has not been confirmed by published transcriptional studies. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance ...

A splice site mutation is a genetic mutation that inserts, deletes or changes a number of nucleotides in the specific site at which splicing takes place during the processing of precursor messenger RNA into mature messenger RNA. Splice site consensus sequences that drive exon recognition are located at the very termini of introns. The deletion of the splicing site results in one or more introns remaining in mature mRNA and may lead to the production of abnormal proteins. When a splice site mutation occurs, the mRNA transcript possesses information from these introns that normally should not be included. Introns are supposed to be removed, while the exons are expressed. The mutation must occur at the specific site at which intron splicing occurs: within non-coding sites in a gene, directly next to the location of the exon. The mutation can be an insertion, deletion, frame shift, etc. The splicing process itself is controlled by the given sequences, known as splice-donor and splice-acceptor ...
The current model of spliceosome assembly was developed principally from the in vitro pattern of small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP) particle association with synthetic splicing substrates (reviewed in Moore et al., 1993; Madhani and Guthrie, 1994; Krämer, 1996). In mammals and yeast, spliceosome assembly progresses by the sequential addition of the U1 snRNP→U2 snRNP→U4/U6.U5 tri‐snRNP particles to the pre‐mRNA. Before 5′ splice‐site cleavage (chemical step I in splicing), the affinities of the U1 and U4 snRNAs for the splicing complex are greatly reduced and, under many (Pikielny et al., 1986; Cheng and Abelson, 1987; Konarska and Sharp, 1987) although not all (Blencowe et al., 1989) isolation conditions, the U4 snRNA is lost from the spliceosome. This model of spliceosome assembly is supported by the abridged spliceosome assembly profiles observed when splicing is inhibited by specific mutations in the pre‐mRNA or when one of the many trans‐acting components of splicing is ...
We have characterized two RNA-binding proteins, of apparent molecular masses of approximately 40 and 35 kDa, which possess a single N-terminal RNA-recognition motif (RRM) followed by a C-terminal domain rich in serine-arginine dipeptides. Their primary structures resemble the single-RRM serine-arginine (SR) protein, SC35; however their functional effects are quite distinctive. The 40-kDa protein cannot complement SR protein-deficient HeLa cell S100 extract and showed a dominant negative effect in vitro against the authentic SR proteins, SF2/ASF and SC35. Interestingly, the 40- and 35-kDa proteins antagonize SR proteins and activate the most distal alternative 5 splice site of adenovirus E1A pre-mRNA in vivo, an activity that is similar to that characterized previously for the heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles A/B group of proteins. A series of recombinant chimeric proteins consisting of domains from these proteins and SC35 in various combinations showed that the RRM, but not the C
Pre-mRNA splicing takes place in an RNA machine known as the spliceosome, which consists of small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles (snRNPs)1 and non-snRNP protein factors. The RNA components in the spliceosome form the catalytic core through a series of dynamic RNA-RNA interactions which are likely to be mediated and/or stabilized by non-snRNP protein factors (for recent reviews see Nilsen, 1998; Staley and Guthrie, 1998). Among the best characterized non-snRNP splicing factors are SR proteins which contain one or two RNA recognition motifs and a signature RS domain containing multiple serine and arginine repeats (for reviews see Fu, 1995; Manley and Tacke, 1996). The RNA recognition motifs bind to RNA sequences in a coordinated fashion to determine splicing specificity (Chandler et al., 1997) and commit pre-mRNA substrates to the splicing pathway (Fu, 1993), whereas the RS domains mediate specific protein- protein interactions in a number of spliceosomal assembly steps (Wu and Maniatis, ...
During spliceosome assembly, protein-protein interactions (PPI) are sequentially formed and disrupted to accommodate the spatial requirements of pre-mRNA substrate recognition and catalysis. Splicing activators and repressors, such as SR proteins and hnRNPs, modulate spliceosome assembly and regulate alternative splicing. However, it remains unclear how they differentially interact with the core spliceosome to perform their functions. Here, we investigate the protein connectivity of SR and hnRNP proteins to the core spliceosome using probabilistic network reconstruction based on the integration of interactome and gene expression data. We validate our model by immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry of the prototypical splicing factors SRSF1 and hnRNPA1. Network analysis reveals that a factors properties as an activator or repressor can be predicted from its overall connectivity to the rest of the spliceosome. In addition, we discover and experimentally validate PPIs between the oncoprotein SRSF1 and
Many functional RNAs are required to fold into specific three-dimensional structures. A fundamental property of RNA is that its secondary structure and even some tertiary contacts are highly stable, which gives rise to independent modular RNA motifs and makes RNAs prone to adopting misfolded intermediates. Consequently, in addition to stabilizing the native structure relative to the unfolded species (defined here as stability), RNAs are faced with the challenge of stabilizing the native structure relative to alternative structures (defined as structural specificity). How RNAs have evolved to overcome these challenges is incompletely understood. Self-splicing group I introns have been used to study RNA structure and folding for decades. Among them, the Tetrahymena intron was the first discovered and has been studied extensively. In this work, we found that a version of the intron that was generated by in vitro selection for enhanced stability also displayed enhanced specificity against a stable ...
Assembly of the spliceosome by the stepwise binding of the snRNPs to the pre-mRNA. In the early phase of spliceosome assembly, the U1 snRNP binds to the 5 splice site (5 SS: where exon 1 ends and the intron begins), and the U2 snRNP binds to the so-called branch point (BP: near the 3 end of the intron). This spliceosome assembly intermediate is called the A complex. The subsequent binding of the U4/U6.U5 tri snRNP complex gives rise to the precatalytic B complex. The catalytic activation of the spliceosome takes place in two steps. In the first, the RNA helicase Brr2 acts to produce the Bact complex and in the second, the RNA helicase Prp2 facilitates the formation of the B* complex. This has a functional active site and, following the recruitment of the protein Cwc25, the first step of splicing takes place. In this step, the phosphodiester bond at the 5 splice site is cleaved and, at the same time, the 5 end of the intron becomes linked to the 2 hydroxyl group of an adenosine at the ...
A tripartite motif located in the centre of the 7.5kb exon 26 of apolipoprotein B (apoB) mRNA directs editosome assembly and site-specific cytidine-to-uridine editing at nucleotide 6666. apoB mRNA editing is a post-transcriptional event, occurring primarily at the time exon 26 is spliced or at a time after splicing, but before nuclear export. We show, through reporter RNA constructs, that RNA splice sites suppress editing of precursor RNAs when placed proximal or distal to the editing site. Processed RNAs were edited more efficiently than precursor RNAs. Mutation of both the splice donor and acceptor sites was necessary for RNAs to be edited efficiently. The results suggested that commitment of pre-mRNA to the splicing and/or nuclear-export pathways may play a role in regulating editing-site utilization. The HIV-1 Rev-Rev response element (RRE) interaction was utilized to uncouple the commitment of precursor RNAs to the spliceosome assembly pathway and associated nuclear-export pathway. Under ...

Lucero Rogel. PREP Program. Lab Group: Alan Zahler. PREP Research: The Zahler lab works to investigate the mechanism of RNA splicing by utilizing C. elegans as a model organism. Accurate splicing of pre-mRNA is a critical step in the gene expression pathway in eukaryotes carried out by a large ribonucleoprotein complex known as the spliceosome. The spliceosome consists of 5 RNAs (U1, U2, U4, U5, and U6) that assemble onto the pre-mRNA by recognizing conserved sequence elements that define the beginning and ends of introns, known as 5 and 3 splice sites. To facilitate the interactions between the pre-mRNA and the 5 RNAs, over 150 proteins are employed to aid in the process. Currently in the lab, I am working on elucidating the role of spliceosomal protein SNRP-27 in 5 splice site selection by uncovering differential interactions that a mutant and wild type form of this factor have with the splicing machinery..

This sequence change affects codon 6 of the SLC2A1 mRNA. It is a silent change, meaning that it does not change the encoded amino acid sequence of the SLC2A1 protein. This variant also falls at the last nucleotide of exon 1 of the SLC2A1 coding sequence, which is part of the consensus splice site for this exon. The frequency data for this variant in the population databases is considered unreliable, as metrics indicate insufficient coverage at this position in the ExAC database. This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with SLC2A1-related conditions. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 378602). Nucleotide substitutions within the consensus splice site are a relatively common cause of aberrant splicing (PMID: 17576681, 9536098). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on RNA splicing suggest that this variant may disrupt the consensus splice site, but this prediction has not been confirmed by published transcriptional ...
HI! Tetrahymena RNA self-splices and does it in a very specific series of steps. You find an RNA that self-splices in the same way. It also loops before splicing and the 5 end of the intron to the 3 end of the exon. You were able to figure out the six nucleotide sequence of the 3 end of the exon. Reading 5 to 3, what is the sequence of the base-pairing nucleotides on the intron starting at position #1? 5 TTTCGG 3 (No, this is a DNA sequence.) 5 GGCUUU 3 (No, this is the right sequence but it is in the wrong direction.) 5 GGCTTT 3 (No, this is a DNA sequence.) 5 UUUCGG 3 (That is correct.) G can hydrogen bond with C, and A can hydrogen bond with U. Reading 5 to 3 the complementary sequence is UUUCGG. You think that this base pairing is important for the self-splicing reaction. To prove this theory, you insert two Uracils into the intron and you find that self-splicing decreases dramatically. Other than deleting the 2 Us, how might you restore the self-splicing reaction to this RNA? ...
Splicing factors of the SR protein family share a modular structure consisting of one or two RNA recognition motifs (RRMs) and a C-terminal RS domain rich in arginine and serine residues. The RS domain, which is extensively phosphorylated, promotes protein-protein interactions and directs subcellular localization and-in certain situations-nucleocytoplasmic shuttling of individual SR proteins. We analyzed mutant versions of human SF2/ASF in which the natural RS repeats were replaced by RD or RE repeats and compared the splicing and subcellular localization properties of these proteins to those of SF2/ASF lacking the entire RS domain or possessing a minimal RS domain consisting of 10 consecutive RS dipeptides (RS10). In vitro splicing of a pre-mRNA that requires an RS domain could take place when the mutant RD, RE, or RS10 domain replaced the natural domain. The RS10 version of SF2/ASF shuttled between the nucleus and the cytoplasm in the same manner as the wild-type protein, suggesting that a ...

It almost sounds like a made up word, but the spliceosome is a very real and very complex molecular machine in the nucleus of cells, and its at the center of some exciting new Kimmel Cancer Center research.. Its job is to chop up genes so that proteins can be transcribed into cellular actions. If a spliceosome gene is mutated in a cancer, it sometimes leads to more gene mutations. These mutations may make cells look different and could attract T cells, so we are exploring spliceosome mutations as a marker for response to immunotherapy, says breast cancer researcher Natasha Hunter.. Spliceosome mutations are rare, occurring in a small fraction of cancers, including about four percent of breast cancers and about 19 percent of melanomas. Studies led by Brian Dalton revealed them as a prognosis indicator for patients with hematologic malignancies, but this new research is one of the first attempts to use them as a therapeutic target.. In conjunction with the GAITWAY Tumor Board, Hunter is leading ...

The SR proteins constitute a large family of nuclear phosphoproteins required for constitutive pre-mRNA splicing. These factors also have global, concentration-dependent effects on alternative splicing regulation and this activity is antagonized by members of the hnRNP A/B family of proteins. We show here that whereas some human SR proteins are confined to the nucleus, three of them-SF2/ASF, SRp20, and 9G8-shuttle rapidly and continuously between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. By swapping the corresponding domains between shuttling and nonshuttling SR proteins, we show that the carboxy-terminal arginine/serine-rich (RS) domain is required for shuttling. This domain, however, is not sufficient to promote shuttling of an unrelated protein reporter, suggesting that stable RNA binding mediated by the RNA-recognition motifs may be required for shuttling. Consistent with such a requirement, a double point-mutation in RRM1 of SF2/ASF that impairs RNA binding prevents the protein from shuttling. In ...

Gene Information This gene encodes one of four subunits of the splicing factor 3B. The protein encoded by this gene cross-links to a region in the pre-mRNA immediately upstream of the branchpoint sequence in pre-mRNA in the prespliceosomal complex A. It also may be involved in the assembly of the B C and E spliceosomal complexes. In addition to RNA-binding activity this protein interacts directly and highly specifically with subunit 2 of the splicing factor 3B. This protein contains two N-terminal RNA-recognition motifs (RRMs) consistent with the observation that it binds directly to pre-mRNA. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]. ...
During pre-mRNA splicing, exons in the primary transcript are precisely connected to generate an mRNA. Intron lariat RNAs are formed as by-products of this process. In addition, some exonic circular RNAs (circRNAs) may also result from exon skipping as by-products. Lariat RNAs and circRNAs are both RNase R resistant RNAs. RNase R is a strong 3 to 5 exoribonuclease, which efficiently degrades linear RNAs, such as mRNAs and rRNAs; therefore, the circular parts of lariat RNAs and the circRNAs can be segregated from eukaryotic total RNAs by their RNase R resistance. Thus, RNase R resistant RNAs could provide unexplored splicing information not available from mRNAs. Analyses of these RNAs identified repeating splicing phenomena, such as re-splicing of mature mRNAs and nested splicing. Moreover, circRNA might function as microRNA sponges. There is an enormous variety of endogenous circRNAs, which are generally synthesized in cells and tissues.
Several predictions come out of these models including the lack of introns in the 3′ UTR and that the average length of exons should be correlated with the window that the proofreading mechanism can operate on. These are discussed in several papers out of Mike Lynchs lab including (Lynch and Connery 2003), (Lynch and Kewalramani, 2003), (Lynch and Richardson, 2002) and recently (Scofield et al, 2007).. Efforts to understand the splicing machinery, particularly in S. cerevisiae have led to the discovery of numerous genes that code for proteins that make up the spliceosome. Some of these include small RNAs as well as protein coding genes. The SR proteins are serine-arginine rich proteins that regulate splicing and are found in almost all eukaryotes including most fungi (even those with few introns, such as S. cerevisiae). SR proteins play a role in splicing and in nuclear export (Masuyama et al, 2004, Sanford et al, 2004) indicating that a coupling of these processes may explain why genes with ...

  • RNA splicing , in molecular biology , is a form of RNA processing in which a newly made precursor messenger RNA (pre- mRNA ) transcript is transformed into a mature messenger RNA ( mRNA ). (
  • For those eukaryotic genes that contain introns, splicing is usually required in order to create an mRNA molecule that can be translated into protein . (
  • Also, as for mRNA, a large fraction of hnRNA was shown to be polyadenylated at its 3′ end like mRNA, consistent with the model that RNA sequences near the 3′ end of hnRNAs are retained in shorter mRNAs exported to the cytoplasm ( 5 , 6 ). (
  • Exons, incidentally, are coding nucleic acid sequences found in DNA and in mature RNA molecules like mRNA, rRNA or tRNA. (
  • The production of alternatively spliced mRNAs is regulated by a system of intermolecular or transacting proteins like splicing activators (which promote splice site use) and splicing repressors (which reduce splice site use), that bind intermolecular or cis-acting sites on the mRNA. (
  • On the negative side, abnormally spliced mRNA may contribute to a host of genetic disorders , including cancer. (
  • Simple illustration of exons and introns in pre-mRNA and the formation of mature mRNA by splicing. (

  • Pre-mRNA splicing or the removal of introns from precursor messenger RNAs depends on the accurate recognition of intron sequences by the plant splicing machinery. (
  • An oligonucleotide complementary to the VSG mRNA downstream from the spliced leader sequence arrested only VSG synthesis. (
  • To better understand how aberrant RNA processing events occur and lead to disease development, we studied cis and trans elements associated with survival motor neuron (SMN) pre-mRNA splicing. (
  • As a means to move more towards a translational approach to restore proper SMN pre-mRNA splicing, we developed a negatively-acting bifunctional RNA that was shown in several different assays to function both in vitro and in the more complex environment of the SMA mouse model in vivo. (
  • To further extend our understanding of pre-mRNA processing and the factors involved in its regulation, we utilize the Minute Virus of Mice (MVM) as a model system to study the fundamental process of alternative splicing. (
  • Further, anti-RBM39 eCLIP revealed RBM39 binding to exonic regions and most enriched at exon/intron borders at 5' and 3' splice sites of pre-mRNA ( Fig. E ), suggesting a prominent role of RBM39 in regulating splicing. (
  • The significance of hnRNP proteins in mRNA biogenesis is likely to be reflected in their RNA binding properties. (
  • We also show that this oligoribonucleotide, as well as two others containing 5' and 3' pre-mRNA splice sites, are potent inhibitors of in vitro pre-mRNA splicing. (
  • Burd CG, Dreyfuss G. RNA binding specificity of hnRNP A1: significance of hnRNP A1 high-affinity binding sites in pre-mRNA splicing. (

  • Human cyclin D1 is expressed as two isoforms derived by alternate RNA splicing, termed D1a and D1b, which differ for the inclusion of intron 4 in the D1b mRNA. (
  • Chromatin immunoprecipitation and RNA coimmunoprecipitation experiments showed that Sam68 is recruited to the human CCND1 gene encoding cyclin D1 and that it binds to cyclin D1 mRNA. (
  • In this respect, it has been recently suggested that the analysis of mRNA variants deriving from alternative splicing (AS) of specific genes can accurately distinguish between normal and neoplastic prostate epithelial cells ( 2 , 3 ). (
  • This function relies on expression of hnRNP H, which ensures the correct splicing of a-raf mRNA needed to produce full-length A-Raf protein. (
  • Here we show that the temperature-dependent accumulation of Cirbp mRNA is controlled primarily by the regulation of splicing efficiency, defined as the fraction of Cirbp pre-mRNA processed into mature mRNA. (
  • Pre-mRNA splicing is required for gene expression in higher eukaryotes. (
  • Pre-mRNA splicing occurs in a large RNA-protein complex called spliceosome, composed of U snRNP and more than 250 proteins [ 1 ]. (
  • 5' splice-site, 3' splice-site, branch-point and polypyrimidine tract sequences are required for pre-mRNA splicing. (
  • Alternative splicing of Ron pre-mRNA produces different isoforms to be produced. (
  • These toxic RNAs cause altered expression of a limited set of RNA-binding proteins, resulting in a disruption of pre-mRNA splicing ( Ranum and Day, 2004 ). (
  • The regulation of alternative splicing involves interactions between RNA-binding proteins and pre-mRNA positions close to the splice sites. (
  • We found that an alternative splice was induced in vivo only when the introns contained more than approximately 50 nucleotides of perfect complementarity, that is, only when the secondary structure was much more stable than most if not all possible secondary structures in natural mRNA precursors. (
  • These results raise the possibility that in cells most pre-mRNA secondary structures either are not maintained long enough to influence splicing choices, or never form at all. (
  • The modulation of pre‐mRNA splicing is proposed as an attractive anti‐neoplastic strategy, especially for the cancers that exhibit aberrant pre‐mRNA splicing. (
  • MYC activation, which altered pre‐mRNA splicing without the transcriptional regulation of CLKs, rendered cancer cells vulnerable to CLK inhibitors with synergistic cell death. (
  • The mRNA targets of TDP-43 in the human brain and its role in RNA processing are largely unknown. (
  • A substantial proportion of alternative mRNA isoforms regulated by TDP-43 encode proteins that regulate neuronal development or have been implicated in neurological diseases, highlighting the importance of TDP-43 for the regulation of splicing in the brain. (
  • apoB mRNA editing is a post-transcriptional event, occurring primarily at the time exon 26 is spliced or at a time after splicing, but before nuclear export. (
  • The results suggested that commitment of pre-mRNA to the splicing and/or nuclear-export pathways may play a role in regulating editing-site utilization. (
  • An enzyme called RNA polymerase - which comprises several protein subunits that all work together - is responsible for making the mRNA molecules. (
  • Carey found that the severity of the mistakes made by RNA polymerase depends on where the mistake is in the mRNA. (
  • To search for large noncoding RNAs that might control gene expression or mRNA metabolism, we used Affymetrix expression arrays to identify polyadenylated RNA transcripts displaying nuclear enrichment. (
  • RNA FISH analyses suggest that these noncoding RNAs function in mRNA metabolism as they demonstrate an intimate association of these RNA species with SC35 nuclear speckles in both human and mouse cells. (
  • The function of these noncoding RNAs in mRNA metabolism is suggested by their high levels of conservation and their intimate association with SC35 splicing domains in multiple mammalian species. (
  • These include several key aspects of mRNA metabolism, such as mRNA splicing, stability, and translation, as well as other mRNA-independent processes, such as miRNA processing, protein sumoylation, and the nucleolar stress response. (
  • In the case of mRNA, a number of modifications are possible, such as C-to-U editing in some chloroplast and mitochondrial transcripts ( Shikanai, 2006 ) or A-to-I deamination, found in some animal RNAs ( Zhang and Carmichael, 2001 ). (
  • Some of these compartments, such as speckles, contain pre-mRNA splicing factors ( Lamond and Sleeman, 2003 ). (
  • Cis-acting mutations can disrupt constitutive and alternative splice sites in the pre-mRNA. (
  • We conclude that inefficient pre-mRNA splicing may interfere with multiple posttranscriptional regulatory events, which has to be considered when interpreting results of genetic interaction screens. (
  • Purpose: The androgen receptor (AR) mRNA splice variant AR-V7 has emerged as a predictive biomarker for response to AR targeted therapies. (
  • Splicing and Microprocessing coexist when a miRNA hairpin is located within an intron without detriment to mature mRNA or miRNA production, but little is known about how these two processes interact when a miRNA hairpin is located within an exon. (

  • RNA immunoprecipitation assays demonstrate that AtNSRs interact not only with their alternatively spliced mRNA targets but also with the ASCO-RNA in vivo. (
  • Expression of ASCO-RNA in Arabidopsis affects the splicing patterns of several NSR-regulated mRNA targets. (
  • Although previous studies demonstrated circular RNAs (circRNAs) does not exclusively comprise mRNA exons, no study has extensively explored their internal structure. (
  • mRNA maturation in Trypanosoma brucei depends upon trans splicing, and variations in trans-splicing efficiency could be an important step in controlling the levels of individual mRNAs. (
  • Pre-mRNA splicing is a critical step in eukaryotic gene expression that contributes to proteomic, cellular and developmental complexity. (
  • To do so, genetic information stored in DNA is first copied into strands of messenger RNA (mRNA), which are subsequently used to create proteins. (
  • In eukaryotes, almost all genes undergo alternative splicing, in which a precursor form of mRNA is cut and re-stitched together in numerous different combinations. (
  • They then modified single atoms at sites on mRNA precursors known to be cut during splicing, as well as several on U6, an RNA subunit of the spliceosome hypothesized to be important for catalysis. (

  • This short-lived nuclear RNA ranged in lengths up to several tens of kilobases, much longer than most cytoplasmic mRNAs, and was referred to as heterogeneous nuclear RNA (hnRNA) ( 3 , 4 ). (
  • Remarkably, the methyl groups in hnRNA cap structures appeared to be conserved as RNA was exported to the cytoplasm, even though, on average, hnRNA molecules in the nucleus are at least four times longer than mRNAs in the cytoplasm ( 7 , 8 ). (
  • Also, the small fraction of pulse-labeled nuclear RNA converted to more stable mRNAs, only 5-10%, added to the difficulty of proving a precursor product relationship from pulse-chase labeling experiments. (
  • Moreover, this full-length pre-rRNA precursor accumulates to significant levels before it is processed into stable mature rRNAs of 18S (1,870 bases), 5.8S (156 bases), and 28S (5,034 bases), so that the fraction of pre-RNA processed into stable cytoplasmic rRNAs is ∼50%, much more than the 5-10% of pulse-labeled hnRNA processed into mRNAs.

  • Many reports of such variant splice sites can be traced to errors in annotation or interpretation, polymorphic differences between the sources of cDNA and genomic sequence, inclusion of pseudogene sequences, or failure to account for somatic mutation. (
  • Two alternate techniques have been described that allow for 5' tag analysis in organisms that do not have trans-spliced leader sequences. (
  • The splice site and branch site sequences in other species are similar but not identical. (

  • RNA splicing contributes to a broad spectrum of post-transcriptional gene regulation during normal development, as well as pathological manifestation of heart diseases. (
  • However, the functional role and regulation of splicing in heart failure remain poorly understood. (
  • Together, this study identifies regulation of RNA splicing by RBM24 as a potent player in remodeling of heart during postnatal development, and provides novel mechanistic insights to the pathogenesis of DCM. (
  • Thus, our findings indicate that changes in splicing kinetics could mediate the distal regulation of alternative splicing. (
  • We explain this discrepancy by proposing that splicing factors facilitate overall RNA regulation in the germline. (
  • Indeed, we find that loss of splicing factors produces synthetic phenotypes with a mutation in another RNA regulator, FOG-1 , but not with a mutation in a gene unrelated to posttranscriptional regulation ( dhc-1 ). (
  • We identified distinct gene groups from differential expression and splicing analyses, which suggested that alternative splicing adds another level to gene expression regulation. (
  • Alternative splicing of pre-messenger RNA is a key feature of transcriptome expansion in eukaryotic cells, yet its regulation is poorly understood. (
  • These findings provide a mechanistic basis for developmental regulation of splicing outcome through heritable epigenetic marks. (
  • Although RNA-Seq data provide unprecedented isoform-level expression information, detection of alternative isoform regulation (AIR) remains difficult, particularly when working with an incomplete transcript annotation. (
  • Understanding the occurrence and regulation of alternative splicing (AS) is a key task towards explaining the regulatory processes that shape the complex transcriptomes of higher eukaryotes. (

  • Splice inhibition led to a decrease in the levels of spliced pri-miR-122, but interestingly also led to a decrease in the levels of unspliced transcript indicating that splice inhibition strongly reduces the transcription of pri-miR-122. (
  • Analysis of the chromatin-associated RNA further confirmed that splice inhibition was having a strong negative effect on transcription. (
  • Transcription of pri-miR-122 is known to be terminated by Microprocessing rather than the canonical pathway, and analysis of other lnc-pri-miRNAs which are Microprocessor terminated showed that the effect of splice inhibition on transcription was not unique to pri-miR-122, but was also shared by the important oncogene pri-miR-17~92a. (
  • The results in this thesis show that intronic or exonic miRNA hairpins do have an effect on splicing, and unexpectedly that splicing is important for efficient transcription of specific lnc-pri-miRNAs. (
  • This work shows that the relationship between Microprocessing and splicing, as well as transcription, is complex. (

  • Phil Sharp: I think what is surprising and is a frontier that I find very promising is we now understand how diseases are related to alternative splicing and to mutations that affect alternative splicing. (
