    ..Together these data establish Rds3p as an essential component of the U2 snRNP SF3b complex and suggest a new link between the nuclear processes of pre-mRNA splicing and RNA export. ..

    ..The corresponding complex was named pre-mRNA REtention and Splicing (RES). The presence of RES subunit homologues in numerous eukaryotes suggests that its function is evolutionarily conserved. ..
