Here we show in fission yeast that the 3' end RNA processing factor Swd2.2, a component of the Cleavage and Polyadenylation Factor (CPF), is a negative regulator of condensin-mediated chromosome condensation.

Precursor messenger RNA processing factor 19 (PRP19) is known to be a critical component of the eukaryotic spliceosomal machinery and DNA damage repair system, the deregulation of which leads to many disease conditions.
Based on natural genetic variation affecting 5' ends of nad2 transcripts in ecotype Can-0 and complementation studies we now identified RNA processing factor 7, which takes part in the generation of the 5' terminus of the mature nad2 mRNA.
Par14 can bind AT-rich double-stranded DNA and was shown to be part of the pre-ribosomal ribonucleoprotein (pre-rRNP) complexes, where it functions as an RNA processing factor that is involved in ribosome biogenesis.

Map-based identification of the affected locus demonstrated that rsr1-1 carries a premature stop codon in the gene for a CstF64-like putative RNA processing factor, ESP1, which is involved in mRNA 3'-end formation.
