Pre-mRNP complexes were isolated from rat liver nuclei as 40S hnRNP particles, and actin-binding proteins were collected by DNase I affinity chromatography. The bound proteins were analyzed by 2D gel electrophoresis, and the following five hnRNP A/B-type proteins were identified by tandem mass spectrometry: DBP40/CBF-A (CArG binding factor A), a minor hnRNP(More)
BACKGROUND Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoproteins (hnRNPs) of the A/B type (hnRNP A1, A2/B1, A3) are highly related multifunctional proteins participating in alternative splicing by antagonising other splicing factors, notably ASF/SF2. The altered expression pattern of hnRNP A2/B1 and/or splicing variant B1 alone in human lung cancer and their potential(More)
The U1 small nuclear RNA (snRNA)--in the form of the U1 spliceosomal Sm small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particle (snRNP) that contains seven Sm and three U1-specific RNP proteins-has a crucial function in the recognition and removal of pre-messenger RNA introns. Here, we show that a fraction of human U1 snRNA specifically associates with the nuclear(More)
The heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoproteins (hnRNPs) constitute an important group of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) that play an active role in post-transcriptional gene regulation. Here, we focus on representative members of the hnRNP group of RBPs, namely hnRNP A1 and hnRNP C1/C2, which participate mainly in RNA splicing, as well as on HuR, a prototype of(More)
The molecular composition of macromolecular assemblies engaged in transcription and splicing influences biogenesis of mRNA transcripts. Preference for one over the other interactive protein partner within those complexes is expected to change the gene expression pattern and to affect subsequent cellular events. We report here the novel and selective(More)
CHO hybrid cell lines obtained by fusing cells of wild-type sensitivity to alpha-amanitin with mutant cells containing RNA polymerase II activity resistant to alpha-amanitin have both sensitive (wild-type) and resistant forms of RNA polymerase II. When these hybrids were grown in medium containing alpha-amanitin, the sensitive form of polymerase II was(More)
Post-transcriptional regulatory networks are dependent on the interplay of many RNA-binding proteins having a major role in mRNA processing events in mammals. We have been interested in the concerted action of the two RNA-binding proteins hnRNP A1 and HuR, both stable components of immunoselected hnRNP complexes and having a major nuclear localization.(More)
