The U2 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particle (snRNP) component SF3b1/SAP155 is the only spliceosomal protein known to be phosphorylated concomitant with splicing catalysis. DYRK1A is a nuclear protein kinase that has been localized to the splicing factor compartment. Here we describe the identification of DYRK1A as a protein kinase that phosphorylates(More)
Protein kinases of the DYRK ('dual-specificity tyrosine-regulated kinase') family are characterized by a conserved Tyr-Xaa-Tyr motif (Tyr-319-Tyr-321) in a position exactly corresponding to the activation motif of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAP kinase) family (Thr-Xaa-Tyr). In a molecular model of the catalytic domain of DYRK1A, the orientation(More)
Protein kinases of the DYRK (dual-specificity tyrosine phosphorylation-regulated kinase) family require phosphorylation of a conserved tyrosine residue in the activation loop for full activity. Here we have characterized the role of conserved amino acids that are located in the vicinity of the phosphorylated tyrosine in DYRK1A (Tyr-321). Mutation of(More)
Cyclin L1 and cyclin L2 are two closely related members of the cyclin family that contain C-terminal arginine- and serine-rich (RS) domains and are localized in the splicing factor compartment (nuclear speckles). Here we applied photobleaching techniques to show that a green fluorescent protein (GFP) fusion protein of cyclin L1, in contrast to cyclin L2,(More)
The dual specificity tyrosine phosphorylated and regulated kinase (DYRK) family of protein kinases is a group of evolutionarily conserved protein kinases that have been characterized as regulators of growth and development in mammals, Drosophila and lower eukaryotes. In the present study, we have characterized three splicing variants of DYRK1B (DYRK1B-p65,(More)
