Exploring the multifunctionality of SR proteins
The difficulties of studying highly versatile SR proteins are highlighted and approaches to disentangle their activities are proposed, which is transferrable to other multifunctional RBPs.
Expansion of genome coding regions by acquisition of new genes
The detail of some interesting gene acquisitions reveals the extreme dynamism of genomes and it is concluded that many of the acquisitions are likely to have been driven by natural selection; they increase functional complexity, diversity, and/or adaptation of species.
Genomes were forged by massive bombardments with retroelements and retrosequences
It is argued that the status of transposable elements with respect to the host resembles more symbiosis than parasitiasis and that host defense is often lenient as if even to ‘tolerate or support’ retronuons.
The Evolution of Sex Determination Systems in Dipteran Insects Other than Drosophila
The elucidation of the complex sex determination pathway of Drosophila melanogaster, as well as recent evidence that the basal genes of the pathway seem to be conserved across metazoan genera both in structure and, to a lesser degree, in function, points towards the possibility that sex determination pathways may have evolved from the bottom-up.
Identification of differentially expressed genes in human melanoma cells with acquired resistance to various antineoplastic drugs
A panel of human melanoma cell variants exhibiting low and high levels of resistance to 4 commonly used drugs in melanoma treatment was characterized by differential display reverse transcription‐polymerase chain reaction ( DDRT‐PCR ), indicating to be associated with drug resistance.

The SR splicing factors ASF/SF2 and SC35 have antagonistic effects on intronic enhancer‐dependent splicing of the β‐tropomyosin alternative exon 6A
It is concluded that exon 6A recognition in vitro depends on the ratio of the ASF/SF2 to SC35 SR proteins, and it is suggested that variations in the level or activity of these proteins could contribute to the tissue‐specific choice of β‐tropomyosin exon 7A.

  • 1997
RNA splicing specificity determined by the coordinated action of RNA recognition motifs in SR proteins.
It is demonstrated that individual domains are functional modules, RS domains are interchangeable, and substrate specificity is defined by the RRMs.
Regulated expression and RNA processing of transcripts from the Srp20 splicing factor gene during the cell cycle
The results suggest that splicing could be regulated during the cell cycle and that this could be, at least in part, due to regulated expression of SR proteins.
Role of the Modular Domains of SR Proteins in Subnuclear Localization and Alternative Splicing Specificity
It is found that the RS domain of SF2/ASF is neither necessary nor sufficient for targeting to the nuclear speckles, and RRM2 ofSF2/asF plays an important role in alternative splicing specificity: deletion of this domain results in a protein that has altered specificity in 5′ splice site selection.
Testis-specific expression of a functional retroposon encoding glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase in the mouse.
G6pd-2 is one of the very few known expressed retroposons encoding a functional protein, and the presence of this gene is probably related to X chromosome inactivation during spermatogenesis.
The splicing factor SRp20 modifies splicing of its own mRNA and ASF/SF2 antagonizes this regulation
An auto‐regulatory activity of an SR protein which is antagonized by a second SR protein is demonstrated for the first time, and evidence is provided that SRp20 probably enhances the recognition of the otherwise unused, weak splice acceptor of exon 4.
