Pre-mRNA-splicing factor 8 - P33334 (PRP8_YEAST)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for P33334: 12
Functions as a scaffold that mediates the ordered assembly of spliceosomal proteins and snRNAs. Required for association of BRR2 with the spliceosomal U5 snRNP, and the subsequent assembly of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex. Functions as scaffold that positions spliceosomal U2, U5 and U6 snRNAs at splice sites on pre-mRNA substrates, so that splicing can occur. Interacts with both the 5' and the 3' splice site, as well as the branch region. Has a role in branch site-3' splice site selection. Associates with the branch site-3' splice 3'-exon region. Also has a role in cell cycle. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Component of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex composed of the U4, U6 and U5 snRNAs and at least PRP3, PRP4, PRP6, PRP8, PRP18, PRP31, PRP38, SNU13, SNU23, SNU66, SNU114, SPP381, SMB1, SMD1, SMD2, SMD3, SMX2, SMX3, LSM2, LSM3, LSM4, LSM5, LSM6, LSM7, LSM8, BRR2 and DIB1. Belongs to the CWC complex (or CEF1-associated complex), a spliceosome sub-complex reminiscent of a late-stage spliceosome composed of the U2, U5 and U6 snRNAs and at least BUD13, BUD31, BRR2, CDC40, CEF1, CLF1, CUS1, CWC2, CWC15, CWC21, CWC22, CWC23, CWC24, CWC25, CWC27, ECM2, HSH155, IST3, ISY1, LEA1, MSL1, NTC20, PRP8, PRP9, PRP11, PRP19, PRP21, PRP22, PRP45, PRP46, SLU7, SMB1, SMD1, SMD2, SMD3, SMX2, SMX3, SNT309, SNU114, SPP2, SYF1, SYF2, RSE1 and YJU2. Interacts with PRP40 and SNP1. Interacts (via SCwid domain) with CWC21. Interacts (via SCwid domain) with SNU114 (via N-terminus). Interacts (via RNase H homology domain and MPN domain) with BRR2; this modulates BRR2 ATPase and helicase activity. Interacts (via RNase H homology domain) with AAR2. AAR2 and BRR2 compete for PRP8 binding, and during U5 snRNP maturation BRR2 displaces the initially bound AAR2. Is associated with snRNP U5, together with SNU114 and BRR2. (data source: UniProt  )
Contains a region with structural similarity to RNase H, but lacks RNase H activity. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal
