ABSTRACT The highly conserved SR family contains a growing number of phosphoproteins acting as both essential and alternative splicing factors. In this study, we have cloned human genomic and cDNA sequences encoding a novel SR protein designated SRp46. Nucleotide sequence analyses have revealed that the SRp46 gene corresponds to an expressed PR264/SC35 retropseudogene. As a result of mutations and amplifications, the SRp46 protein significantly differs from the PR264/SC35 factor, mainly at the… 
Srp2, an SR protein family member of fission yeast: in vivo characterization of its modular domains
TLDR
It is found that RBD2 is essential for function and determines the specificity of RBD1 in Srp2, which is consistent with the notion that the RBDs of these proteins may be involved in pre-mRNA recognition.
The splicing factors 9G8 and SRp20 transactivate splicing through different and specific enhancers.
TLDR
The results provide the first evidence for cooperation between an RBD and a zinc knuckle in defining the specificity of an RNA binding domain and demonstrate the ability of 9G8 and of its zincknuckle variant, or SRp20, to act as efficient splicing transactivators through their specific RNA targets.
Serine-Arginine (SR) Protein-like Factors That Antagonize Authentic SR Proteins and Regulate Alternative Splicing*
TLDR
It is proposed that these two RNA-binding proteins are SR protein-like alternative splicing regulators that antagonize authentic SR proteins in the modulation of alternative 5′ splice site choice.
Functional characterization of SR and SR‐related genes in Caenorhabditis elegans
The SR proteins constitute a family of nuclear phosphoproteins, which are required for constitutive splicing and also influence alternative splicing regulation. Initially, it was suggested that SR
SC35 autoregulates its expression by promoting splicing events that destabilize its mRNAs
TLDR
It is shown that overexpression of SC35 in HeLa cells results in a significant decrease of endogenous SC35 mRNA levels along with changes in the relative abundance ofSC35 alternatively spliced mRNAs.
The Modular Domain Structure of ASF/SF2: Significance for its Function as a Regulator of RNA Splicing
TLDR
The results suggest that the RBD2 domain in ASF/SF2 plays the most decisive role in the alternative 5’ and 3’ splice site regulatory activities of ASF-RBD2.
Systematic genome-wide annotation of spliceosomal proteins reveals differential gene family expansion.
TLDR
This work describes a semiautomated computational pipeline to identify and annotate splicing factors in representative species of eukaryotes and reports several intronless genes amongst splicing proteins in mammals, suggesting that retrotransposition contributed to the complexity of the mammalian splicing apparatus.
SRp30a (ASF/SF2) regulates the alternative splicing of caspase-9 pre-mRNA and is required for ceramide-responsiveness Published, JLR Papers in Press, February 27, 2006.
TLDR
The specific downregulation of SRp30a was identified as an RNA trans-acting factor that functions as a major regulator of caspase-9 pre-mRNA processing and is required for ceramide to mediate the alternative splicing of cospase- 9.

Identification and characterization of three members of the human SR family of pre‐mRNA splicing factors.
TLDR
Consistent with the postulated importance of SR proteins in alternative splicing in vivo, complex changes in the levels of mRNAs encoding the above SR proteins upon T cell activation are demonstrated, concomitant withChanges in the expression of alternatively spliced isoforms of CD44 and CD45.
Characterization and cloning of the human splicing factor 9G8: a novel 35 kDa factor of the serine/arginine protein family.
TLDR
It is shown that a recombinant 9G8 protein, expressed using a baculovirus vector and excluding other SR factors, rescues the splicing activity of a9G8‐depleted nuclear extract and an S100 cytoplasmic fraction, indicating that 9G 8 plays a crucial role in splicing, similar to that of the other SR splicing factors.
Overexpression of the SR proteins ASF/SF2 and SC35 influences alternative splicing in vivo in diverse ways.
TLDR
Unexpectedly, overexpression of SC35, but not ASF/SF2, resulted in substantial accumulation of the unspliced SV40 pre-mRNA, which was efficiently transported to the cytoplasm, suggesting that SC35 may play an unanticipated role in mRNA stability and/or transport.
Human SR proteins and isolation of a cDNA encoding SRp75.
TLDR
Two untested SR proteins, SRp20 and SRp75, can also complement the splicing-deficient extract and are shown to contain serine-rich regions and a long C-terminal domain composed predominantly of alternating serine and arginine residues.
Regulated expression and RNA processing of transcripts from the Srp20 splicing factor gene during the cell cycle
TLDR
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.
The splicing factor SRp20 modifies splicing of its own mRNA and ASF/SF2 antagonizes this regulation
TLDR
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.
The human splicing factors ASF/SF2 and SC35 possess distinct, functionally significant RNA binding specificities.
TLDR
A central role for ASF/SF2 in the function of purine‐rich splicing enhancers is suggested and evidence is presented that binding specificity involves cooperation between the protein's two RBDs.
Functional properties of p54, a novel SR protein active in constitutive and alternative splicing
TLDR
It is reported that p54 is a new member of the SR family of splicing factors, as judged from its structural, antigenic, and functional characteristics, and it is suggested that this novel SR protein may participate in regulation of alternative splicing in a tissue- and substrate-dependent manner.
Two members of a conserved family of nuclear phosphoproteins are involved in pre-mRNA splicing.
TLDR
The results suggest that the conserved SR family of phosphoproteins, which includes SRp55 and SF2, is involved in constitutive pre-mRNA splicing and in the specificity of alternative splice site selection.
A potential splicing factor is encoded by the opposite strand of the trans-spliced c-myb exon.
TLDR
It is reported that a putative splicing factor (PR264) is encoded by the opposite strand of the c-myb trans-spliced exon, and that the relative proportion of the PR264 transcripts is developmentally regulated in chicken.
