Pre-mRNA splicing plays a fundamental role in securing protein diversity by generating multiple transcript isoforms from a single gene. Recently, it has been shown that specific G-patch domain-containing proteins are critical cofactors involved in the regulation of splicing processes. In this study, using the knock-out strategy, affinity purification and the yeast-two-hybrid assay, we demonstrated that the spliceosome-associated G-patch protein Gpl1 of the fission yeast S. pombe mediates interactions between putative RNA helicase Gih35 (SPAC20H4.09) and WD repeat protein Wdr83, and ensures their binding to the spliceosome. Furthermore, RT-qPCR analysis of the splicing efficiency of deletion mutants indicated that the absence of any of the components of the Gpl1-Gih35-Wdr83 complex leads to defective splicing of fet5 and pwi1, the reference genes whose unspliced isoforms harboring premature stop codons are targeted for degradation by the nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) pathway. Together, our results shed more light on the functional interactome of G-patch protein Gpl1 and revealed that the Gpl1-Gih35-Wdr83 complex plays an important role in the regulation of pre-mRNA splicing in S. pombe.
