Summaries for PRPF3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRPF3 Gene

  • 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 retinitis pigmentosa 18 and prpf3-related retinitis pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Spliceosome and mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding.

    • Interacts directly with PRPF4. Part of a heteromeric complex containing PPIH, PRPF3 and PRPF4 that is stable in the absence of RNA. Component of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex composed of the U4, U6 and U5 snRNAs and at least PRPF3, PRPF4, PRPF6, PRPF8, PRPF31, SNRNP200, TXNL4A, SNRNP40, DDX23, CD2BP2, PPIH, NHP2L1, EFTUD2, SART1 and USP39.

Disorders for PRPF3 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for PRPF3 Gene (607301)


  • Retinitis pigmentosa 18 (RP18) [MIM:601414]: 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:11773002, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12714658}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
