SmD3 (Human Small Nuclear Ribonucleoprotein Sm D3)
Spodoptera frugiperda Sf9
Small nuclear ribonucleoprotein complexes (abbreviated as U-snRNP) are essential for splicing of precursor mRNA molecules. Seven different Sm proteins aggregate into a heteroheptameric protein core, including small nuclear ribonucleoprotein Sm D3 (SmD3 or snRNPD3).
In the blood of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, antinuclear antibodies are developed with Sm specificity.
As an autoantigen, SmD3 binds with IgG-type human auto-antibodies.
