The RNA components of small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (U snRNPs) possess a characteristic 5'-terminal trimethylguanosine cap structure (m3G cap). This cap is an important component of the nuclear localization signal of U snRNPs. It arises by hypermethylation of a cotranscriptionally added m7G cap. Here we describe an in vitro assay for the hypermethylation, which employs U snRNP particles reconstituted in vitro from purified components and subsequent analysis by m3G cap-specific… CONTINUE READING
