Watching dynamics and assembly of spliceosomal complexes at single molecule resolution

Chandani Manoja Warnasooriya
Splicing plays a major role in eukaryotic gene expression by processing pre-mRNA to form mature mRNA. Splicing is catalysed by the spliceosome; a ribonucleoprotein complex consisting of five small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (snRNPs) and over 100 proteins. Proper assembly of spliceosomal components is critical for its function, and thus assembly defects can be lethal. Several diseases have been associated with splicing defects, such as cancer (breast cancer, leukaemia), cystic fibrosis, duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), retinitis pigmentosa...
