STRINGSTRING
CWC21 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CWC21" - Protein involved in RNA splicing by the spliceosome in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

CWC21Protein involved in RNA splicing by the spliceosome; component of a complex containing Cef1p; interacts genetically with ISY1 and BUD13; may bind RNA; has similarity to S. pombe Cwf21p; Involved in pre-mRNA splicing. May function at or prior to the first catalytic step of splicing at the catalytic center of the spliceosome, together with ISY1. May do so by stabilizing the catalytic center or the position of the RNA substrate (135 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PRP19
Splicing factor associated with the spliceosome; contains a U-box, a motif found in a class of ubiquitin ligases, and a WD40 domain; Probable ubiquitin-protein ligase involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Acts as a central component of the NTC complex (or PRP19-associated complex) that associates to the spliceosome to mediate conformational rearrangement or to stabilize the structure of the spliceosome after U4 snRNA dissociation, which leads to spliceosome maturation. It is also probably involved in DNA repair (503 aa)

CEF1
Essential splicing factor; associated with Prp19p and the spliceosome, contains an N-terminal c-Myb DNA binding motif necessary for cell viability but not for Prp19p association, evolutionarily conserved and homologous to S. pombe Cdc5p; Involved in pre-mRNA splicing and cell cycle control. Required for the binding of the NTC complex (or PRP19-associated complex) components to the spliceosome to mediate conformational rearrangement or to stabilize the structure of the spliceosome after U4 snRNA dissociation, which leads to spliceosome maturation. Its absence leads to an arrest of the c [...] (590 aa)

CDC40
Pre-mRNA splicing factor, important for catalytic step II of pre-mRNA splicing and plays a role in cell cycle progression; required for DNA synthesis during mitosis and meiosis; has WD repeats; May function in the second step of pre-mRNA splicing. Regulatory protein involved in replication and mitotic spindle formation and/or maintenance. Required for initiation and completion of S-phase and for initiation and completion of DNA replication. Might be required for the maintenance of microtubules. Essential only at elevated temperatures (455 aa)

BUD31
Component of the SF3b subcomplex of the U2 snRNP; diploid mutants display a random budding pattern instead of the wild-type bipolar pattern; Involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Important for bud site selection (157 aa)

PRP8
Component of the U4/U6-U5 snRNP complex, involved in the second catalytic step of splicing; mutations of human Prp8 cause retinitis pigmentosa; 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 [...] (2413 aa)

CWC2
Member of the NineTeen Complex (NTC) that contains Prp19p and stabilizes U6 snRNA in catalytic forms of the spliceosome containing U2, U5, and U6 snRNAs; binds directly to U6 snRNA; similar to S. pombe Cwf2; Involved in the first step of pre-mRNA splicing. Required for cell growth and cell cycle control. Plays a role in the levels of the U1, U4, U5 and U6 snRNAs and the maintenance of the U4/U6 snRNA complex. May provide the link between the "nineteen complex" NTC spliceosome protein complex and the spliceosome through the U6 snRNA. Associates predominantly with U6 snRNAs in assembled [...] (339 aa)

Component of U2 snRNP; disruption causes reduced U2 snRNP levels; physically interacts with Msl1p; putative homolog of human U2A’ snRNP protein; Involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Associates to U2 snRNA in a MSL1 dependent manner and is required for normal accumulation of U2 snRNA. Required for the spliceosome assembly and the efficient addition of U2 snRNP onto the pre-mRNA (238 aa)

PRP16
DEAH-box RNA helicase involved in second catalytic step of splicing; exhibits ATP-dependent RNA unwinding activity; mediates the release of Yju2p and Cwc25p in the second step; in the absence of ATP, stabilizes the binding of Cwc25p to the spliceoso /.../the first catalytic step; Influences the fidelity of branchpoint recognition in yeast splicing. This is RNA-dependent ATPase which is essential for viability. It may mediate one of the many ATP-requiring steps of spliceosome assembly and that accuracy of branchpoint recognition may be coupled to ATP binding and/or hydrolysis (1071 aa)

BRR2
RNA-dependent ATPase RNA helicase (DEIH box); required for disruption of U4/U6 base-pairing in native snRNPs to activate the spliceosome for catalysis; homologous to human U5-200kD; RNA helicase that plays an essential role in pre-mRNA splicing as component of the U5 snRNP and U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complexes.
