Abstract


The second intron (bi2) of the cyt b gene from related Saccharomyces species has an extraordinarily conserved sequence and can have different functions in wild-type cells. The protein encoded by the S. cerevisiae intron functions as a maturase to promote intron splicing, while the homologous S. capensis intron encodes a bifunctional protein that acts both as a maturase and as a homing endonuclease (I-ScaI) promoting intron mobility. The protein encoded by intron bi2 belongs to a large gene family characterized by the presence of two conserved LAGLIDADG motifs (P1 and P2). In this study, we analysed a set of splicing-deficient mutants of the S. cerevisiae intron bi2 that carry non-directed mutations affecting the maturase activity, and a set of directed missense mutations introduced into the bifunctional protein encoded by the S. capensis intron. Analysis of these mutations has allowed identification of the residues in the conserved P1 and P2 motifs which are crucial for splicing and homing activities. Moreover, several mutations which are located in the C-terminal part of the protein have been found to affect both functions.
