Inhibition of the nuclear export of poly(A)-containing mRNAs caused by the influenza A virus NS1 protein requires its effector domain. Here, we demonstrate that the NS1 effector domain functionally interacts with the cellular 30 kDa subunit of CPSF, an essential component of the 3' end processing machinery of cellular pre-mRNAs. In influenza virus-infected(More)
In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, pre-mRNA 3'-end processing requires six factors: cleavage factor IA (CF IA), cleavage factor IB (CF IB), cleavage factor II (CF II), polyadenylation factor I (PF I), poly(A) polymerase (Pap1p) and poly(A)-binding protein I (Pab1p). We report the characterization of Pfs2p, a WD-repeat protein previously identified in a(More)
We report the cloning of a zebrafish paired-type homeobox gene, Alx, closely related to the murine Chx10 and the gold fish Vsx-I homeodomain proteins. Alx is first expressed at about 12 h post-fertilization (hpf) when optic vesicles appear. Its expression is restricted to the early retinal neuroepithelium, whereas no signal can be detected in the optic(More)
Cleavage and polyadenylation specificity factor (CPSF), a key component of the mammalian RNA 3'-end processing machinery, consists of four subunits of 160, 100, 73, and 30 kD. Here we report the isolation and characterization of a cDNA encoding the 30-kD polypeptide. Antibodies raised against this protein inhibit cleavage and polyadenylation and(More)
Yth1p is the yeast homologue of the 30 kDa subunit of mammalian cleavage and polyadenylation specificity factor (CPSF). The protein is part of the cleavage and polyadenylation factor CPF, which includes cleavage factor II (CF II) and polyadenylation factor I (PF I), and is required for both steps in pre-mRNA 3'-end processing. Yth1p is an RNA-binding(More)
