PROJECT TITLE

“Regenerative Mechanisms for Health" ReMedy

SUBPROJECT TITLE:

„Structure-function analysis of the spliceosome”

PROJECT LEADER

Magda Konarska, Laboratory of RNA Biology

SUBPROJECT DESCRIPTION

We are interested in the function of the spliceosome, its dynamic changes during splicing, and possible in response to stress conditions.  The spliceosomal catalytic center undergoes dynamic changes during the catalytic phase of splicing; these changes affect splicing catalysis, altering splicing fidelity and thus affecting alternative splicing patterns. Using recent cryo-EM information of yeast S. cerevisiae spliceosome as a model, we focus on substrate-spliceosome interactions at the catalytic center. These studies will lead to new approaches for modulating alternative splicing patterns.
