Pre-mRNA splicing is among the last known nuclear events before export of mature mRNA to the cytoplasm. At present, it is not known whether splicing and mRNA export are biochemically coupled processes. In this study, we have injected pre-mRNAs containing a single intron or the same mRNAs lacking an intron (Deltai-mRNAs) into Xenopus oocyte nuclei. We find that the spliced mRNAs are exported much more rapidly and efficiently than the identical Deltai-mRNAs. Moreover, competition studies using… Expand
The protein Aly links pre-messenger-RNA splicing to nuclear export in metazoans
TLDR
It is shown that Aly, the metazoan homologue of the yeast mRNA export factor Yra1p, is recruited to messenger ribonucleoprotein (mRNP) complexes generated by splicing. Expand
Pre-mRNA processing factors are required for nuclear export.
TLDR
Analysis of mRNA nuclear export in living yeast cells shows the connections between mRNA processing and nuclear export. Expand
Splicing promotes rapid and efficient mRNA export in mammalian cells
TLDR
It is concluded that splicing promotes mRNA export in mammalian cells and that the functional coupling between splicing and mRNA export is a conserved and general feature of gene expression in higher eukaryotes. Expand
Human mRNA Export Machinery Recruited to the 5′ End of mRNA
TLDR
Data indicate that the CBP80-Aly interaction results in recruitment of TREX to the 5' end of mRNA, where it functions in mRNA export, as observed in early electron micrographs of giant Balbiani ring mRNPs. Expand
Pre-mRNA splicing imprints mRNA in the nucleus with a novel RNA-binding protein that persists in the cytoplasm.
TLDR
It is suggested that pre-mRNA splicing imprints mRNA with a unique set of proteins that persists in the cytoplasm and thereby communicates the history of the transcript. Expand
Investigating mRNA Sequence Features that Regulate Nuclear Export
TLDR
The sequence features within a transcript that determine its cellular localization are dissected to suggest that most mRNAs are exported to the cytoplasm independently of splicing unless they contain a nuclear retention element. Expand
Splicing promotes the nuclear export of β-globin mRNA by overcoming nuclear retention elements.
TLDR
Evidence that β-globin mRNA contains an element that actively retains it in the nucleus and degrades it is provided, suggesting that contrary to many current models, the default pathway for most intronless RNAs is to be exported from the nucleus, unless the RNA contains elements that actively promote its nuclear retention. Expand
Definition of global and transcript-specific mRNA export pathways in metazoans.
TLDR
The results define the global network of factors involved in Drosophila mRNA export, reveal specificity in the export requirements of different transcripts, and expose new avenues for future work in mRNA export. Expand
The Consensus 5' Splice Site Motif Inhibits mRNA Nuclear Export
TLDR
The data suggests that the presence of the 5’splice site motif in mature RNAs promotes their nuclear retention and may help to distinguish mRNAs from misprocessed transcripts and transcriptional noise. Expand
Expression of the essential mRNA export factor Yra1p is autoregulated by a splicing-dependent mechanism.
TLDR
It is shown here that overexpression of the intron-containing gene results in increased levels of unspliced pre-mRNA but normal levels of Yra1 protein; conversely, expression of the cDNA results inIncreased levels of protein and accumulation of nuclear poly(A)+ RNA. Expand

Some cis- and trans-acting mutants for splicing target pre-mRNA to the cytoplasm
TLDR
It is concluded that early acting factors, probably including U1 snRNA, and the RNA6 and RNA9 gene products, interact in vivo with the 5' splice junction and the branchpoint sequence to commit the pre-mRNA to the splicing pathway, thereby preventing its transport to the cytoplasm. Expand
Normal and mutant human β-globin pre-mRNAs are faithfully and efficiently spliced in vitro
TLDR
The ability to synthesize mutant pre-mRNAs and study their splicing in a faithful in vitro system provides a powerful approach to determine the mechanisms of RNA splice-site selection. Expand
Nuclear export of different classes of RNA is mediated by specific factors
TLDR
Evidence is presented that some steps in the export of various classes of nuclear RNA are mediated by specific rather than common factors, and examples are provided of experiments in which synthetic homopolymeric RNAs are used as inhibitors. Expand
Inhibition of mRNA export in vertebrate cells by nuclear export signal conjugates.
TLDR
It is found that peptide conjugates composed of the NES of either protein kinase A inhibitor protein (PKI) or the HIV-1 Rev protein, when coupled to human serum albumin, are potent inhibitors of mRNA and small nuclear RNA export. Expand
A Role for the M9 Transport Signal of hnRNP A1 in mRNA Nuclear Export
TLDR
Kinetic competition experiments are used here to demonstrate that M9-directed nuclear import in Xenopus oocytes is a saturable process and suggests that hnRNP A1 or other proteins containing an M9 domain play a role in mRNA export from the nucleus. Expand
Evidence that HIV‐1 Rev directly promotes the nuclear export of unspliced RNA.
TLDR
Xenopus oocytes results demonstrate that Rev can act directly at the level of nuclear export, independent of any inhibitory effect that it may exert on the splicing of pre‐mRNA. Expand
Monomethylated cap structures facilitate RNA export from the nucleus
TLDR
Results suggest that the m7GpppN cap structure is likely to be a signal for RNA export from the nucleus, and that a mutant precursor mRNA unable to form detectable splicing complexes was significantly delayed by incorporation of a hypermethylated cap structure. Expand
Intron sequences involved in lariat formation during pre-mRNA splicing
TLDR
Analysis of beta-thalassemia splicing mutations revealed that lariat formation in the first intron of the human beta-globin gene occurs at the same site in normal and mutant precursors, even though alternate 5' and 3' splice sites are utilized in the mutants. Expand
HnRNP L binds a cis-acting RNA sequence element that enables intron-dependent gene expression.
TLDR
It is concluded that hnRNP L binds in a sequence-specific manner to this RNA sequence element that enables intron-independent gene expression, and that introns-independent pre-mRNA processing and transport involves sequence- specific RNA-protein interactions between cis-acting RNA sequence elements and proteins such as hn RNP L.

An RNA-export mediator with an essential nuclear export signal
TLDR
The characterization of a new and essential yeast protein, Glel, which contains an NES and has a relative molecular mass of 62,000, indicates that Glel is an RNA-export factor and that Rev may mediate viral RNA export by mimicking the function of Glel. Expand
