Summaries for PRPF6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRPF6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene appears to be involved in pre-mRNA splicing, possibly acting as a bridging factor between U5 and U4/U6 snRNPs in formation of the spliceosome. The encoded protein also can bind androgen receptor, providing a link between transcriptional activation and splicing. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PRPF6 Gene

PRPF6 (Pre-MRNA Processing Factor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRPF6 include retinitis pigmentosa 60 and prpf6-related retinitis pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Spliceosome. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and androgen receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRPF6 Gene

  • Involved in pre-mRNA splicing as component of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex, one of the building blocks of the spliceosome. Enhances dihydrotestosterone-induced transactivation activity of AR, as well as dexamethasone-induced transactivation activity of NR3C1, but does not affect estrogen-induced transactivation.

  • Retinitis pigmentosa 60 (RP60) [MIM:613983]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21549338}. Note=The disease may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Cells from RP60 patients show intron retention for pre-mRNA bearing specific splicing signals.
