Abstract / Bemerkung
Transcription initiation of the genes coding for small nuclear RNA (snRNA) has been extensively analyzed in human and fruit fly, but only a single ortholog of a snRNA-activating protein complex (SNAPc) subunit has so far been characterized in plants. The genome of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana encodes orthologs of all three core SNAPc subunits, including AtSNAPc4 - a 4R MYB-type protein with four-and-a-half adjacent MYB repeat units. We report the conserved role of AtSNAPc4 as subunit of a protein complex involved in snRNA gene transcription and present genetic evidence that AtSNAPc4 is an essential gene in gametophyte and zygote development. We present experimental evidence that the three A. thaliana SNAPc subunits assemble into a SNAP complex and demonstrate the binding of AtSNAPc4 to snRNA promoters. In addition, co-localization studies show a link between AtSNAPc4 accumulation and Cajal bodies (CB), known to aggregate at snRNA gene loci in humans. Moreover, we show the strong evolutionary conservation of single-copy 4R-MYB/SNAPc4 genes in a broad range of eukaryotes and present additional shared protein features besides the MYB domain, suggesting a conservation of the snRNA transcription initiation machinery along the course of the eukaryotic evolution.
