snRNPA (Human Small Nuclear Ribonucleoprotein Polypeptide A)
Spodoptera frugiperda Sf9
U1-snRNPA, RNPA, RNP-A
Small nuclear ribonucleoprotein complexes (abbreviated as U-snRNP) are essential for splicing of precursor mRNA molecules. U1-snRNP is the most abundant RNP particle in the nucleus and consists of one small uridylate-rich RNA (U1 RNA) complexed with several proteins, and the three 68/70 kDa (snRNP68/70), A polypeptides (snRNPA) and C polypeptides (snRNPC) are unique to the U1-snRNP particle.
Autoantibodies to U1-snRNP are present in 95% of patients with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD) and 30% of patients with SLE.
As an autoantigen, RNP-A binds with IgG-type human auto-antibodies.
