Entrez Gene Summary for NHP2L1 Gene

  • Originally named because of its sequence similarity to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae NHP2 (non-histone protein 2), this protein appears to be a highly conserved nuclear protein that is a component of the [U4/U6.U5] tri-snRNP. It binds to the 5' stem-loop of U4 snRNA. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NHP2L1 Gene

NHP2L1 (NHP2 Non-Histone Chromosome Protein 2-Like 1 (S. Cerevisiae)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Ribosome biogenesis in eukaryotes. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and snoRNA binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NHP2L1 Gene

  • Binds to the 5-stem-loop of U4 snRNA and may play a role in the late stage of spliceosome assembly. The protein undergoes a conformational change upon RNA-binding.
