Gene information for PRPF18 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID8559
Official gene symbolPRPF18
Full namePRP18 pre-mRNA processing factor 18 homolog (S. cerevisiae)
Gene summaryPre-mRNA splicing occurs in 2 sequential transesterification steps. The protein encoded by this gene is found to be essential for the catalytic step II in pre-mRNA splicing process. It is found in the spliceosome, and contains seven WD repeats, which function in protein-protein interactions. This protein has a sequence similarity to the yeast splicing factor Prp18.
