The RNA-binding properties of SMN: deletion analysis of the zebrafish orthologue defines domains conserved in evolution.

Abstract

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a common autosomal recessive disorder that results in the degeneration of spinal motor neurons. SMA is caused by alterations of the survival motor neuron ( SMN ) gene which encodes a novel protein of hitherto unclear function. The SMN protein associates with ribonucleoprotein particles involved in RNA processing and exhibits… (More)
