Abstract


The U5 snRNA loop 1 is characterized by the conserved sequence G1C2C3U4U5U6Y7A8Y9 and is essential for the alignment of exons during the second step of pre-mRNA splicing in Saccharo myces cerevisiae. Despite this sequence conservation the size, rather than sequence, of loop 1 is critical for exon alignment in vitro. To determine the in vivo requirements for U5 loop 1 a library of loop 1 sequences was transformed into a yeast strain where the endogenous U5 gene was deleted. Comparison of viable mutations in loop 1 revealed that position 6 was invariant and positions 5 and 7 displayed some sequence conservation. These data indicate positions 5, 6 and 7 in loop 1 are important for U5 function in vivo. A screen for mutations that suppress the temperature-sensitive phenotype of three loop 1 mutants produced eight intragenic suppressors all containing alterations in loop 1. Further analysis of these temperature-sensitive mutants revealed that each displayed distinct cell cycle arrest phenotypes and pre-mRNA splicing inhibition patterns. The cell cycle arrest is likely attributed to inefficient splicing of alpha-tubulin pre-mRNA in one mutant and actin pre-mRNA in another. These results suggest that various mutations in loop 1 may affect the splicing of different pre-mRNAs in vivo.
