Secondary Information

Protein Function The Sm-like proteins are thought to form a stable heteromer present in tri-snRNP particles, which are important for pre-mRNA splicing.LSm proteins may play a role in U4/U6 snRNP formation.
Biochemical Properties Conserved "Sm motif".The Sm motif is relatively degenerate and consists of two parts, termed Sm1 and Sm2 domains, which are often separated by a large loop region.form seven-member ring structures that interact with RNA.

A doughnut-shaped heteromer of human Sm-like proteins binds to the 3'-end of U6 snRNA, thereby facilitating U4/U6 duplex formation in vitro.
