GeneCards Summary for RNU6ATAC8P Gene
RNU6ATAC8P (RNA, U6atac Small Nuclear 8, Pseudogene) is a Pseudogene, and is affiliated with the snRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for RNU6ATAC8P Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
snRNA: A small nuclear RNA molecule involved in pre-mRNA splicing and processing.
U6atac minor spliceosomal RNA: U6atac is an essential component of the minor U12-type spliceosome complex which is required for removal of the rarer class of eukaryotic introns (AT-AC, U12-type) . U6atac snRNA is proposed to form a base-paired complex with another spliceosomal RNA U4atac via two stem loop regions. These interacting stem loops have been shown to be required for in vivo splicing . U6atac is the functional analog of U6 (Rfam:RF00026) in the major U2-type spliceosomal complex .
