fRNAdb sequence ontologies for RNU6-493P Gene
U6 spliceosomal RNA: U6 snRNA is a component of the spliceosome which is involved in splicing pre-mRNA. The putative secondary structure consensus base pairing is confined to a short 5' stem loop, but U6 snRNA is thought to form extensive base-pair interactions with U4 snRNA . This model hits a large number of sequences in vertebrate genomes, which appear to be U6 derived pseudogenes or repeats. This family has a high significance threshold to minimise this problem, but many annotated pseudogenes remain.
