The 5' cap trimethylation of small nuclear (snRNAs) and several nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) by trimethylguanosine synthase 1 (Tgs1p) is required for efficient pre-mRNA splicing. The previously uncharacterised protein Swm2p interacted with Tgs1p in yeast two-hybrid screens. In the present study we show that Swm2p interacts with the N-terminus of Tgs1p and its(More)
Trimethylguanosine Synthase catalyses transfer of two methyl groups to the m(7)G cap of RNA polymerase II transcribed snRNAs, snoRNAs, and telomerase RNA TLC1 to form a 2,2,7-trimethylguanosine cap. While in vitro studies indicate that Tgs1 functions as a monomer and the dimethylation of m(7)G caps is not a processive reaction, partially methylated(More)
