GeneCards Summary for AQR Gene
AQR (Aquarius Intron-Binding Spliceosomal Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Spliceosome. GO annotations related to this gene include pre-mRNA intronic binding. An important paralog of this gene is SETX.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AQR Gene
Intron-binding spliceosomal protein required to link pre-mRNA splicing and snoRNP (small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein) biogenesis. Plays a key role in position-dependent assembly of intron-encoded box C/D small snoRNP, splicing being required for snoRNP assembly. May act by helping the folding of the snoRNA sequence. Binds to intron of pre-mRNAs in a sequence-independent manner, contacting the region between snoRNA and the branchpoint of introns (40 nucleotides upstream of the branchpoint) during the late stages of splicing.
