Initial recognition of U12-dependent introns requires both U11/5' splice-site and U12/branchpoint interactions.


We have investigated the formation of prespliceosomal complex A in HeLa nuclear extracts on a splicing substrate containing an AT-AC (U12-type) intron from the P120 gene. Using an RNase H protection assay and specific blocking oligonucleotides, we find that recognition of the 5' splice-site (5'ss) and branchpoint sequence (BPS) elements by U11 and U12… (More)
