MEP50 (methylosome protein 50) is a component of the methylosome, a protein arginine methyltransferase complex that modifies specific arginine residues found in arginine- and glycine-rich regions of some spliceosomal Sm proteins. MEP50 is important for methylosome activity and may regulate the transfer of Sm proteins to the SMN (survival of motor neurons) complex, an early step in the assembly of U snRNPs. Both the methylosome and the SMN complex are essential for the assembly of spliceosomal snRNPs (1). 
 MEP50 is a WD repeat protein that may provide an interface for multiple protein interactions between methylosome proteins. (1). It binds to JBP1, an arginine protein methyltransferase component of the methylosome. MEP50 has been shown to interact with CTD phosphatase FCP1 (CTDP1), a protein that may link the processes of transcriptional elongation and splicing (2), and with SUZ12, a polycomb group protein involved in transcriptional repression (3). JBP1 and MEP50 have also been reported to interact with the methyl-CpG binding protein complex MBD2/NuRD (4).

MEP50(methylosome protein 50)是甲基转移酶复合体(methylosome)的组成成分,一个精氨酸甲基转移酶复合体能够修饰特定的精氨酸残基,并且这些残基在一些剪接小体Sm蛋白的精氨酸和甘氨酸富足区域发现。MEP50对于甲基转移酶复合体的活性是非常重要,并且可能调节Sm蛋白转换到SMN (survival of motor neurons)复合体,而SMN是U snRNPs组装的早期过程。Methylosome和SMN复合物对剪接小体snRNPs的组装有非常重要的作用(1)。MEP50是WD序列重复的蛋白,它可能对于多种蛋白在methylosome蛋白之间相互作用提供了一个界面(1)。它结合到JBP1,JBP1是一个methylosome的精氨酸蛋白甲基转移酶成分。MEP50已经被证明与CTD phosphatase FCP1 (CTDP1)以及SUZ12相互作用,CTD phosphatase FCP1 (CTDP1)可能是一个与转录的延长和剪切过程关联的蛋白(2),而SUZ12是属于Polycomb group (PcG) 蛋白且涉及翻译的抑制(3)。JBP1和MEP50已经证明也和甲基化Cp-G结合蛋白复合体MBD2/NuRD有相互作用(4)。
