SF3B6, Splicing factor 3B subunit 6
Also Known as
SF3B6_HUMAN, SF3B6, SAP14, SF3B14, SF3B14A
Involved in pre-mRNA splicing as a component of the splicing factor SF3B complex (PubMed:27720643). SF3B complex is required for 'A' complex assembly formed by the stable binding of U2 snRNP to the branchpoint sequence (BPS) in pre-mRNA (PubMed:12234937). Directly contacts the pre-mRNA branch site adenosine for the first catalytic step of splicing (PubMed:16432215). Enters the spliceosome and associates with the pre-mRNA branch site as part of the 17S U2 or, in the case of the minor spliceosome, as part of the 18S U11/U12 snRNP complex, and thus may facilitate the interaction of these snRNP with the branch sites of U2 and U12 respectively (PubMed:16432215). Component of splicing factor SF3B complex which is composed of at least eight subunits; SF3B1, SF3B2, SF3B3, SF3B4, SF3B5, SF3B6, PHF5A and DDX42 (PubMed:12234937, PubMed:12738865, PubMed:16432215, PubMed:27720643, PubMed:28541300). Within the SF3B complex interacts directly with SF3B1 (PubMed:21062891, PubMed:16432215, Ref.20). The SF3B complex composed of SF3B1, SF3B2, SF3B3, SF3B4, SF3B5, SF3B6 and PHF5A interacts with U2AF2 (PubMed:27720643). Component of the U11/U12 snRNPs that are part of the U12-type spliceosome (PubMed:15146077).
