||ASF or called SF2, a member of SR protein family, is an essential pre-mRNA splicing factor required for both single and alternative splicing. Phosphorylation on serine residues located within the SR domain directly regulates ASF/SF2 activity and compartmentalization of other SR splicing factors. In addition to interacting with RNA and other splicing factors, such as U1-70K, U2AF and other SR proteins, ASF/SF2 also directly or indirectly interacts with HIV regulatory protein Rev, the C-terminal domain (CTD) of the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II, and numerous transcription factors, thereby suggesting a potential role of ASF/SF2 in coordinating of transcription and pre-mRNA splicing. The human ASF/SF2 wild type protein (residues 1-248) was expressed in baculovirus system and purified by an affinity column in combination with FPLC chromatography.
