This article is from Nucleic Acids Research, volume 42.AbstractTrans-splicing in trypanosomes adds a 39-nucleotide mini-exon from the spliced leader (SL) RNA to the 5′ end of each protein-coding sequence. On the other hand, cis-splicing of the few intron-containing genes requires the U1 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP) particle. To search for potential new functions of the U1 snRNP in Trypanosoma brucei, we applied genome-wide individual-nucleotide resolution crosslinking-immunoprecipitation (iCLIP), focusing on the U1 snRNP-specific proteins U1C and U1-70K. Surprisingly, U1C and U1-70K interact not only with the U1, but also with U6 and SL RNAs. In addition, mapping of crosslinks to the cis-spliced PAP poly(A) polymerase pre-mRNA indicate an active role of these proteins in 5′ splice site recognition. In sum, our results demonstrate that the iCLIP approach provides insight into stable and transient RNA–protein contacts within the spliceosomal network. We propose that the U1 snRNP may represent an evolutionary link between the cis- and trans-splicing machineries, playing a dual role in 5′ splice site recognition on the trans-spliceosomal SL RNP as well as on pre-mRNA cis-introns.
