The protein encoded by this gene is involved in mRNA splicing and may play a role in the determination of alternative splicing. The encoded nuclear protein belongs to the splicing factor SR family and has been shown to bind with and modulate another member of the family, SFRS12. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. In addition, two pseudogenes, one on chromosome 17 and the other on the X chromosome, have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
GeneCards Summary for SRSF6 Gene
SRSF6 (Serine And Arginine Rich Splicing Factor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SRSF6 include Aromatic L-Amino Acid Decarboxylase Deficiency and Plasmodium Malariae Malaria. Among its related pathways are mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway and Tat-mediated elongation of the HIV-1 transcript. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and RNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is SRSF4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SRSF6 Gene
Plays a role in constitutive splicing and modulates the selection of alternative splice sites. Plays a role in the alternative splicing of MAPT/Tau exon 10. Binds to alternative exons of TNC pre-mRNA and promotes the expression of alternatively spliced TNC. Plays a role in wound healing and in the regulation of keratinocyte differentiation and proliferation via its role in alternative splicing.
