Abstract

Coupling between transcription and pre-mRNA splicing is a key regulatory mechanism in gene expression. Here, we investigate cotranscriptional spliceosome assembly in yeast, using in vivo crosslinking to determine the distribution of spliceosome components along intron-containing genes. Accumulation of the U1, U2, and U5 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles (snRNPs) and the 3' splice site binding factors Mud2p and BBP was detected in patterns indicative of progressive and complete spliceosome assembly; recruitment of the nineteen complex (NTC) component Prp19p suggests that splicing catalysis is also cotranscriptional. The separate dynamics of the U1, U2, and U5 snRNPs are consistent with stepwise recruitment of individual snRNPs rather than a preformed "penta-snRNP", as recently proposed. Finally, we show that the cap binding complex (CBC) is necessary, but not sufficient, for cotranscriptional spliceosome assembly. Thus, the demonstration of an essential link between CBC and spliceosome assembly in vivo indicates that 5' end capping couples pre-mRNA splicing to transcription.
