1H, 13C and 15N resonance assignments of a ribonucleoprotein complex consisting of Prp24-RRM2 bound to a fragment of U6 RNA



Saccharomyces cerevisiae Prp24 is an essential RNA binding protein involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Nearly complete backbone and side chain resonance assignments have been obtained for the second RNA recognition motif (RRM) of Prp24 (RRM2, residues M114-E197) both in isolation and bound to a six nucleotide fragment of U6 RNA (AGAGAU). In addition, nearly complete backbone assignments have been made for a Prp24 construct spanning the second and third RRMs (RRM23, residues M114-K290), both free and bound to AGAGAU.
