    Synergistic assembly of human pre-spliceosomes across introns and exons

    Joerg E Braun et al.
    Viewing the dynamic interactions of individual spliceosomal subcomplexes with single pre-messenger RNA molecules reveals how nearby flanking splice sites accelerate pre-spliceosome assembly and the splicing of multi-intron pre-mRNAs.

    Chromatin-associated RNA sequencing (ChAR-seq) maps genome-wide RNA-to-DNA contacts

    Jason C Bell et al.
    ChAR-seq is a massively parallelized de novo RNA mapping assay, which is capable of generating hundreds to thousands of RNA-binding maps with no a priori knowledge of target RNAs.

    ICE1 promotes the link between splicing and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay

    Thomas D Baird et al.
    A whole-genome siRNA screen identifies ICE1 as a factor required for accurate sensing and quality control of mRNAs containing premature stop codons.

    The kinetics of pre-mRNA splicing in the Drosophila genome and the influence of gene architecture

    Athma A Pai et al.
    Surprising connections between gene architecture and splicing kinetics are illuminated using short, progressive metabolic labeling/RNA sequencing and novel computational modeling approaches in Drosophila cells.

    YTHDC1 mediates nuclear export of N6-methyladenosine methylated mRNAs

    Ian A Roundtree et al.
    YTHDC1 facilitates selective clearance of N6-methyladenosine methylated mRNAs from the nucleus to the cytoplasm through binding by nuclear 'reader' proteins and incorporation into the canonical mRNA export pathway.

    Characterisation of the biflavonoid hinokiflavone as a pre-mRNA splicing modulator that inhibits SENP

    Andrea Pawellek et al.
    Hinokiflavone is identified as a splicing modulator that blocks progression from spliceosome complex A to complex B and inhibits SUMO protease SENP1, causing hyper-SUMOylation affecting 6 U2 snRNP proteins.

    Dynamics and consequences of spliceosome E complex formation

    Joshua Donald Larson, Aaron A Hoskins
    Single molecule fluorescence analysis of spliceosome E complex formation reveals how tuning of U1 binding to the 5' SS facilitates efficient capture of the snRNP by pre-mRNAs.

    Functional mapping of yeast genomes by saturated transposition

    Agnès H Michel et al.
    A new method maps functional and structural features of yeast genomes with unprecedented ease and throughput, which allows identification of protein domains at the genome scale.

    Copy-number and gene dependency analysis reveals partial copy loss of wild-type SF3B1 as a novel cancer vulnerability

    Brenton R Paolella et al.
    Partial copy loss of spliceosome genes are common non-driver gene dependencies in cancer.

    Cancer Therapeutics: Partial loss of genes might open therapeutic window

    Bo Liu, Omar Abdel-Wahab
    The loss of genes that encode RNA splicing factors weakens cancer cells in a way that could be exploited by new approaches to treatment.
