GeneCards Summary for YJU2 Gene
YJU2 (YJU2 Splicing Factor Homolog) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is CCDC130.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for YJU2 Gene
Part of the spliceosome which catalyzes two sequential transesterification reactions, first the excision of the non-coding intron from pre-mRNA and then the ligation of the coding exons to form the mature mRNA (PubMed:29301961). Plays a role in stabilizing the structure of the spliceosome catalytic core and docking of the branch helix into the active site, producing 5'-exon and lariat intron-3'-intermediates (By similarity). May protect cells from TP53-dependent apoptosis upon dsDNA break damage through association with PRP19-CD5L complex (PubMed:22952453).
