Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SNRPG Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a component of the U1, U2, U4, and U5 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein complexes, precursors of the spliceosome. The encoded protein may also be a part of the U7 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein complex, which participates in the processing of the 3' end of histone transcripts. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
GeneCards Summary for SNRPG Gene
SNRPG (Small Nuclear Ribonucleoprotein Polypeptide G) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SNRPG include Lung Papillary Adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Processing of Capped Intronless Pre-mRNA and mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. An important paralog of this gene is LSM7.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SNRPG Gene
Plays role in pre-mRNA splicing as core component of the SMN-Sm complex that mediates spliceosomal snRNP assembly and as component of the spliceosomal U1, U2, U4 and U5 small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (snRNPs), the building blocks of the spliceosome (PubMed:11991638, PubMed:18984161, PubMed:19325628, PubMed:23333303, PubMed:25555158, PubMed:26912367, PubMed:28502770, PubMed:28781166, PubMed:28076346). Component of both the pre-catalytic spliceosome B complex and activated spliceosome C complexes (PubMed:11991638, PubMed:28502770, PubMed:28781166, PubMed:28076346). Is also a component of the minor U12 spliceosome (PubMed:15146077). As part of the U7 snRNP it is involved in histone 3'-end processing (PubMed:12975319).
