Abstract

The compositional and conformational changes during catalytic activation of the spliceosome promoted by the DEAH box ATPase Prp2 are only poorly understood. Here, we show by dual-color fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy (dcFCCS) that the binding affinity of several proteins is significantly changed during the Prp2-mediated transition of precatalytic B(act) spliceosomes to catalytically activated B* spliceosomes from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. During this step, several proteins, including the zinc-finger protein Cwc24, are quantitatively displaced from the B* complex. Consistent with this, we show that Cwc24 is required for step 1 but not for catalysis per se. The U2-associated SF3a and SF3b proteins Prp11 and Cus1 remain bound to the B* spliceosome under near-physiological conditions, but their binding is reduced at high salt. Conversely, high-affinity binding sites are created for Yju2 and Cwc25 during catalytic activation, consistent with their requirement for step 1 catalysis. Our results suggest high cooperativity of multiple Prp2-mediated structural rearrangements at the spliceosome's catalytic core. Moreover, dcFCCS represents a powerful tool ideally suited to study quantitatively spliceosomal protein dynamics in equilibrium.
