Gamma-monomethyl phosphate: a cap structure in spliceosomal U6 small nuclear RNA

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Nov 1, 1989

R Singh, R Reddy

PMID: 2813391

Abstract

U6 small nuclear RNA (snRNA), a component of eukaryotic spliceosomes, is required for splicing of nuclear pre-mRNAs. Whereas trimethylguanosine cap-containing U sn-RNAs are transcribed by RNA polymerase II, the U6 RNA is transcribed by RNA polymerase III and contains a nonnucleotide cap...read more

Eukaryotic RNA Polymerase II

RNA polymerase II (RNAP II) is a 550 kDa multiprotein complex composed of 12 subunits. Here is the latest research on RNAP II and its role it regulating transcription and transcription-coupled recombination repair.

Eukaryotic RNA Polymerase III

Eukaryotic RNA polymerase III (RNAP III) is a multisubunit enzyme responsible for transcribing tRNA, 5S rRNA, and several small RNAs. Here is the latest research.

Alternative splicing

Alternative splicing a regulated gene expression process that allows a single genetic sequence to code for multiple proteins. Here is that latest research.

mRNA capping

mRNA capping, the addition of a 5’ 7-methylguanosine cap to messenger RNA, is an evolutionarily conserved process. Here is the latest research on mRNA capping enzymes and the importance of mRNA capping on biological processes.

Spliceosome

Spliceosomes are massive RNA protein macromolecules that are cellular machinery involved in the splicing and removal of the non-coding segments of DNA and the ligation of coding segments, exons. Discover the latest research on spliceosomes here.
