DBF3, DNA39, RNA8, SLT21, USA2, U4/U6-U5 snRNP complex component PRP8, L000001500, L000003226, YHR165C
Component of U4/U6-U5 snRNP complex; involved in second catalytic step of splicing; participates in spliceosomal assembly through its interaction with U1 snRNA; largest and most evolutionarily conserved protein of the spliceosome; mutations in its human ortholog, PRPF8, cause Retinitis pigmentosa and missplicing in Myelodysplastic syndrome.

Dosage Lethality

A genetic interaction is inferred when over expression or increased dosage of one gene causes lethality in a strain that is mutated or deleted for another gene.


Spp382p interacts with multiple yeast splicing factors, including possible regulators of Prp43 DExD/H-Box protein function.

Prp43p catalyzes essential steps in pre-mRNA splicing and rRNA biogenesis. In splicing, Spp382p stimulates the Prp43p helicase to dissociate the postcatalytic spliceosome and, in some way, to maintain the integrity of the spliceosome assembly. Here we present a dosage interference assay to identify Spp382p-interacting factors by screening for genes that when overexpressed specifically inhibit the growth of a conditional lethal ... [more]
