Drosophila crooked-neck protein co-fractionates in a multiprotein complex with splicing factors.

The Drosophila crooked neck (crn) gene encodes an unusual TPR-containing protein whose function is essential for embryonic development. Homology with other TPR-proteins involved in cell cycle control, initially led to the proposal that Crn might play a critical role in regulation of embryonic cell divisions. Here, we show that Crn does not have a cell cycle… CONTINUE READING
