SNRPA1, a 28kD protein, is a specific component of U2 snRNP particle and consists of a unique N-terminal leucine-rich region and an extremely hydrophobic RNA-binding C-terminal region. It lacks segments homologous to RNP1 and RNP2, common aa motifs found in several RNA-binding proteins. It associates with U2 snRNP and participates in transcription and pre-mRNA splicing. It might play an important role in cell division and proliferation. Patients with connective tissue disorders often produce autoantibodies against snRNP particles.
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
