Splicing regulator SLU7 is essential for maintaining liver homeostasis.
In J Clin Invest, 2014
Slu7 governed the splicing and/or expression of multiple genes essential for hepatocellular differentiation, including serine/arginine-rich splicing factor 3 (Srsf3) and hepatocyte nuclear factor 4α (Hnf4α), and was critical for cAMP-regulated gene transcription.
The control of lipid metabolism by mRNA splicing in Drosophila.
Hempstead, United States. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2014
Interestingly, while decreasing the SR protein 9G8 in the larval fat body yielded a similar triglyceride phenotype, its knockdown in the adult fat body resulted in a substantial increase in lipid stores.
Identification of IRF8, TMEM39A, and IKZF3-ZPBP2 as susceptibility loci for systemic lupus erythematosus in a large-scale multiracial replication study.
Oklahoma City, United States. In Am J Hum Genet, 2012
Eleven additional replicated effects (5 × 10(-8) < p(meta-Euro) < 9.99 × 10(-5)) were observed with CFHR1, CADM2, LOC730109/IL12A, LPP, LOC63920, SLU7, ADAMTSL1, C10orf64, OR8D4, FAM19A2, and STXBP6.
Aberrant expression of splicing factors in newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.
Nanchang, China. In Onkologie, 2011
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction, we measured mRNA expression of 7 splicing factors belonging to the serine/arginine-rich (SR) protein family, SRSF1 (SF2/ASF), SRSF2 (SC35), SRSF3 (SRp20), SRSF4 (SRp75), SRSF5 (SRp40), SRSF6 (SRp55), and SRSF7 (9G8), and 1 non-SR factor, heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A1 (HNRNPA1), in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of 26 patients with newly diagnosed AML and 26 healthy controls.
Alterations of pre-mRNA splicing in human inflammatory bowel disease.
Kiel, Germany. In Eur J Cell Biol, 2011
To investigate these subtype-specific changes in detail we determined the expression levels of seven splicing factors (DUSP11, HNRPAB, HNRPH3, SLU7, SFR2IP, SFPQ, SF3B14) and three intron retention events (PARC, IER3, FGD2) in a cohort of 165 patients with inflammatory diseases of the colon (120 with IBD) and 30 healthy controls by real time PCR (TaqMan).
Mechanisms of fidelity in pre-mRNA splicing.
Boston, United States. In Curr Opin Cell Biol, 2000
Of particular note were the discoveries that the splicing factor U2AF(35) recognizes the AG dinucleotide at the 3' splice site early in spliceosome assembly, that a DEAD-box ATPase, Prp28, triggers specific rearrangements of the spliceosome, and that the splicing factor hSlu7 functions in the fidelity of AG choice during catalytic step II of splicing.
