Inhibition of pre-mRNA splicing by a synthetic Blom7α-interacting small RNA.
Vienna, Austria. In Plos One, 2011
Originally the novel protein Blom7α was identified as novel pre-mRNA splicing factor that interacts with SNEV(Prp19/Pso4), an essential protein involved in extension of human endothelial cell life span, DNA damage repair, the ubiquitin-proteasome system, and pre-mRNA splicing.
Intrusion of a DNA repair protein in the RNome world: is this the beginning of a new era?
Udine, Italy. In Mol Cell Biol, 2010
The new findings are as follows: (i) APE1 interacts with rRNA and ribosome processing protein NPM1 within the nucleolus; (ii) APE1 interacts with proteins involved in ribosome assembly (i.e., RLA0, RSSA) and RNA maturation (i.e., PRP19, MEP50) within the cytoplasm; (iii) APE1 cleaves abasic RNA; and (iv) APE1 cleaves a specific coding region of c-myc mRNA in vitro and influences c-myc mRNA level and half-life in cells.
Role of PSO genes in repair of DNA damage of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Porto Alegre, Brazil. In Mutat Res, 2003
Of the seven DNA repair genes involved in induced mutagenesis three PSO loci [PSO1/REV3, PSO8/RAD6, PSO9/MEC3] were allelic to already known repair genes, whereas three, PSO2/SNM1, PSO3/RNR4, and PSO4/PRP19 represent new genes involved in DNA repair and nucleic acid metabolism in S. cerevisiae.
