Parasitology: read in PLoS One an article by Hybrigenics' customer about T.brucei spliceosome

Paris, France - March 26

The splicing factor SF3a60 is currently the only annotated SF3a component in Trypanosoma. To further characterize this essential complex in Trypanosoma,  the Laboratory of Molecular Biology of Chagas’ Disease formerly headed by the regretted Dr Mariano Levin searched for the protein partners of SF3a60. They used a combination of ULTImate Y2H screening and tandem affinity purification coupled to mass spectrometry that gave both overlapping and complementary results. The Y2H screen was conducted on Hybrigenics highly complex Trypanosoma brucei genomic library.

Homologs of the two other human subunits of the SF3a complex, SF3a66 and SF3a120, were among the identified partners. Other interactants found in the Y2H screen include the two genes encoding the RNA polymerase II largest subunit RPB1, suggesting additional SF3a functions in replication. The delineation of the minimal interacting domain on those Y2H partners revealed conserved binding motifs.

This work was published online in PLoS One in March 2014 (see the article “Proteins Associated with SF3a60 in T. bruceihere).
