Beckman Scholar Camille Potts Published in Journal of Molecular Biology

2017 Beckman Scholar Camille Potts from Trinity University published her research in the Journal of Molecular Biology: Functional and Biochemical Characterization of Dib1’s Role in Pre-messenger RNA Splicing.

Highlights retrieved from the journal included:

  • Spliceosomal protein Dib1 is centrally located in the putative active site of the spliceosome
  • Novel Dib1 mutants stall spliceosome assembly or activation
  • Exogeneous Dib1 protein can rescue Dib1 mutants in whole-cell yeast extracts
  • Structural analyses suggest that Dib1 mutants functionally affect interactions with other spliceosomal proteins
