This gene encodes a catalytic subunit of the tRNA splicing endonuclease, which catalyzes the removal of introns from precursor tRNAs. The endonuclease complex is also associated with a pre-mRNA 3-prime end processing factor. A mutation in this gene results in the neurological disorder pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 2. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from
Markley et al., Madison, United States. In J Mol Biol, 2007
Splicing of eukaryal intron-containing tRNAs requires the action of the heterotetrameric splicing endonuclease, which is composed of two catalytic subunits, Sen34 and Sen2, and two structural subunits, Sen15 and Sen54.
Endo et al., Nagoya, Japan. In Mol Biol Cell, 2003
In yeast, the tRNA splicing endonuclease that cleaves the exon-intron junctions of pre-tRNAs consists of Sen54p, Sen2p, Sen34p, and Sen15p and was thought to be an integral membrane protein of the inner nuclear envelope.
