SAP155, a subunit of the U2 snRNP, is essential for prespliceosome assembly and splicing catalysis of the major spliceosome. Moreover, the protein has been identified in the minor (U12-dependent) spliceosome. These facts strongly suggest that SAP155 is shared by two distinct complexes owing to its importance in the removal of any type of intron. Here we have isolated a cDNA encoding the 146-kDa mouse homolog, designated Sf3b1. The amino acid sequence of Sf3b1 is very highly conserved among homologs from Schizosaccharomyces pombe (52.4% identity) to human (99.6%), and the C-terminal 825 residues of these Sf3b1 homologs show even higher identities. This C-terminal region shows significant similarity to the PR65 subunit of protein phosphatase 2A, which is composed of 15 tandem repeats of a 39 amino acid sequence. Mouse genome analyses showed Sf3b1 to be a single-copy gene mapping to the central part of Chromosome (Chr) 1. Northern blot analysis and whole mount in situ hybridization revealed Sf3b1 to be ubiquitously expressed in a variety of adult tissues and mid-gestation embryos.
