Relevance

As Sxl functions as a splicing repressor, it may give insight into the effects of varying mechanisms of alternate splicing both in flies and other species. Sxl may also lead to understanding of human alternative splicing factors. As an RNA binding protein, research regarding Sxl may contribute to the understanding of enzymes with RNA recognition motifs. The Sxl RNP motif of RBD1 is also conserved in the ELAV family of proteins[1].
