Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/2000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 274 kDa.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      Central component of the spliceosome, which may play a role in aligning the pre-mRNA 5'- and 3'-exons for ligation. Interacts with U5 snRNA, and with pre-mRNA 5'-splice sites in B spliceosomes and 3'-splice sites in C spliceosomes.
    • Tissue specificity

      Widely expressed.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in PRPF8 are the cause of retinitis pigmentosa type 13 (RP13) [MIM:600059]. RP leads to degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells. 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. RP13 inheritance is autosomal dominant.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 1 MPN (JAB/Mov34) domain.
    • Domain

      The MPN domain has structural similarity with viral ribonucleases and RNase H, but unlike RNases, it does not bind any metal ions.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    • Cellular localization

      Nucleus speckle.
