    ..The characteristics of Rse1p suggest that its human homologue could be a subunit of the SF3 splicing factor. ..

    ..These data suggest that the loss of Luc7p disrupts U1 snRNP-CBC interaction, and that this interaction contributes to normal 5' splice site recognition. ..

    ..Combined with mass spectrometry, the TAP strategy allows for the identification of proteins interacting with a given target protein. The TAP method has been tested in yeast but should be applicable to other cells or organisms. ..

    ..Thus, the U5 snRNP protein Snu114p associates with Prp8p in the region 437-770, whereas fragmenting Prp8p at residue 2173 destabilizes its association with Aar2p. ..

    ..The technique should be applicable to any protein complex that can be biochemically purified from an organism whose genome is known. ..

    ..Thus, the basic structural scaffold of the Aar2-U5 snRNP seems to be essentially determined by Prp8p, Snu114p, and the Sm proteins. ..

    ..Thus, the same chaperoning module has allowed the evolution of functionally and, remarkably, structurally distinct RNPs, telomerase, and RNases P/MRP from unrelated progenitor RNAs. ..
