Abstract

Proline-rich sequences (PRS) and their recognition domains have emerged as transposable protein interaction modules during eukaryotic evolution. They are especially abundant in proteins associated with pre-mRNA splicing and likely assist in the formation of the spliceosome by binding to GYF and WW domains. Here we profile PRS-mediated interactions of the CD2BP2/52K GYF domain by a site-specific peptide inhibitor and stable isotope labeling/mass spectrometry analysis. Several PRS hubs with multiple proline-rich motifs exist that can recruit GYF and/or WW domains. Saturating the PRS sites by an isolated GYF domain inhibited splicing at the level of A complex formation. The interactions mediated by PRS are therefore important to the early phases of spliceosomal assembly.
