Lanes 1 and 3 correspond to amplification with ex19F and in20R, lanes 2 and 4 to amplification with in20F and ex22R. RNA was extracted 48 h later and cDNA was prepared using random primers and reverse transcriptase as previously described In addition, this result indicates that previously reported exonic splicing silencers identical to ISPE 28 may exert their inhibitory effect through non-canonical binding to U1 snRNP. In this paper, we have carefully characterized the composition of cis -acting sequences around the ISPE signal and the role of non-canonical U1 snRNP binding. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. A growing body of evidence indicates that genomic variations at non-canonical splicing regulatory elements may unexpectedly affect the splicing process 25 ,

Transfection experiments showed that the wt mouse intron and the mouse xtm with the ISPE deletion are normally processed Figure 3C. Splicing defects in the ataxia-telangiectasia gene, ATM: Please review our privacy policy.

CblE type of homocystinuria due to methionine synthase reductase deficiency: This obligatory splicing direction induced by the deletion can be observed even in hybrid minigenes with a short intronic context Figure 5C and the precursor is properly spliced in vivo in the aym context that includes the flanking ATM exons and natural splice sites Figure 6.

In the three minigenes, cotransfection of U induces disappearance of the cryptic exon, whereas U has no effect Figure 2B. The pre-mRNA forms are schematically represented along with the primers utilized. Above each exon are depicted the modified U1 snRNAs binding sites.

We ahm previously shown that the activation of the cryptic exon occurs through the disruption of a non-canonical interaction of U1 snRNP with the ISPE. Medicine Baltimore ; Genomic variants in exons and introns: Lines above the sequence show the position of modified U1 snRNAs binding site. SC35 plays a role in T cell development and alternative splicing of CD In this construct, the splicing intermediate lacking the preceding intron is embedded in the natural context with the flanking ATM exon 20, downstream intron sequences, and ATM exon U1snRNP recruitment by sequence complementarity to heterologous exonic sequences causes splicing inhibition in some contexts The splicing inhibitory effect of U1 snRNP was further investigated on exonic pre-mRNA sequences.


X-linked hypophosphatemia attributable to pseudoexons of the PHEX gene. Our results identify cis -acting sequences that can induce aberrant amt in the context of deep intronic mutations that affect an ISPE sequence and provide a possible general role of non-canonical U1 snRNP binding sites in correct intron processing. We created site-directed mutants at either adjacent splice sites that were analyzed alone or in the presence ahm complementary U1 snRNAs. To analyze the interference with the cryptic splice sites more in detail, we identified the pre-mRNA splicing precursors derived from lymphoblast cells and from hybrid minigene experiments.

Control experiments, in which the same U1 snRNAs were transfected along with the WT minigene, did not show changes in the splicing pattern data not shown. Exons are indicated as boxes, introns as line and dotted lines represent the possible splicing products. In fact, the deletion occurs 12 bp downstream and 53 bp upstream respectively from the two cryptic splice sites, whose sequences were already present in the wild-type intron. The lower and higher MW bands correspond to normal intron processing and inclusion of the 65 bp cryptic exon, respectively.

Lanes 1 and 3 correspond to amplification with ex19F and in20R, lanes 2 and 4 to amplification with in20F and ex22R. Analysis of pre-mRNA splicing intermediates in vivo and in hybrid minigenes The function of the Gr2 is presently not clear, it is possible that the U1 snRNP complex formed in deep intronic sequences may facilitate but may not be essential for efficient removal of the intron.


Even lanes correspond to control amplification of RNA samples without reverse transcriptase. Restoration of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator function by splicing modulation.

Regulation of fibronectin EDA exon alternative splicing: Resulting products were analyzed on 1. The cryptic ATM exon is shown as a grey box with dotted outline.

Effect of modified U1 snRNAs on splicing in heterologous exonic sequences. The specificity provided by the complementarity of the U1 snRNA or by antisense oligoribonucleotides 29 is a preferable therapeutic strategy to correct this splicing defect when compared to overexpression of regulatory splicing gt like SC35 and Htra2-b 30which have widespread splicing effects in the cell 31 To extend this observation, and to confirm the absence of amplified products with primers located in the upstream portion of intron 20, we searched for the same intermediates in a shorter intron version of the ATM hybrid minigene, which was prepared to improve the RT—PCR detection of pre-mRNA forms Figure 5B.
