Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SNAPC2 Gene
This gene encodes a subunit of the snRNA-activating protein complex which is associated with the TATA box-binding protein. The encoded protein is necessary for RNA polymerase II and III dependent small-nuclear RNA gene transcription. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for SNAPC2 Gene
SNAPC2 (Small Nuclear RNA Activating Complex Polypeptide 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase III Transcription Initiation and Gene Expression. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SNAPC2 Gene
Part of the SNAPc complex required for the transcription of both RNA polymerase II and III small-nuclear RNA genes. Binds to the proximal sequence element (PSE), a non-TATA-box basal promoter element common to these 2 types of genes. Recruits TBP and BRF2 to the U6 snRNA TATA box.
