The removal of introns from nuclear pre-mRNAs occurs on complexes called spliceosomes, which are made up of 4 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP) particles and an undefined number of transiently associated splicing factors. This gene product is one of several proteins that associate with U4 and U6 snRNPs. Mutations in this gene are associated with retinitis pigmentosa-18. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for PRPF3 Gene
PRPF3 (Pre-MRNA Processing Factor 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRPF3 include prpf3-related retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 18. Among its related pathways are mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and identical protein binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRPF3 Gene
Participates in pre-mRNA splicing. Part of the U4/U5/U6 tri-snRNP complex, one of the building blocks of the spliceosome.
