Project title:

“Regenerative Mechanisms for Health”

Subproject title:

„Structure-function analysis of the spliceosome”

Laboratory of RNA Biology, Head: Prof. Magda Konarska

Project description:

We are interested in the function of the spliceosome and in its dynamic changes during splicing, and possibly 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. For more information please contact Magda Konarska m.konarska@imol.institute
