There is only one protein coding transcript and one polypeptide associated with this gene
Essential component of the CSN complex, probably composed of CSN1b, alien/CSN2, CSN3, CSN4, CSN5, CSN6, CSN7 and CSN8.
The PCI domain is necessary and sufficient for interactions with other CSN subunits of the complex.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.

The symbol "CG13383" has been used erroneously in FlyBase to name 2 adjacent annotations in different releases of the genome annotation. The two annotations represent the CSN8 and Pp2A-29B genes. In release 2 of the genome annotation, the "CG13383" annotation corresponded to the CSN8 open reading frame (ORF), and the annotation corresponding to Pp2A-29B was labelled "CG17291". In release 3.1 of the genome annotation, the "CG13383" annotation corresponded to the Pp2A-29B open reading frame (ORF). In release 3.2 of the genome annotation, the two genes were annotated as part of a dicistronic transcript represented by the "CG33297" annotation. In release 5.1 of the genome annotation, the two genes were annotated as monocistronic transcripts, as there was no longer sufficient evidence to support a processed dicistronic transcript, with the annotation representing the Pp2A-29B gene being labelled "CG17291" and the annotation representing the CSN8 gene being labelled "CG13383". Since the "CG13383" symbol has been used for two different annotations, the annotation for the CSN8 gene has been renamed to "CG42522" in release 5.13 of the genome annotation to avoid confusion.
RT-PCR analysis of CSN8 and Pp2A-29B transcription provides no evidence that a dicistronic transcript containing both open reading frames is produced. Thus it is concluded that CSN8 is transcribed independently of Pp2A-29B and that a dicistronic transcript is unlikely or is present at undetectable levels.
CSN8 and Pp2A-29B were annotated as being non-overlapping open reading frames derived from a processed dicistronic transcript in release 3.2 of the genome based on the LD10247 cDNA. However, this clone appears to be problematic and there is no longer sufficient evidence to support a processed dicistronic transcript, thus CSN8 and Pp2A-29B have been annotated as genes encoded by monocistronic transcripts in release 5.1 of the genome annotation.
