GEMIN6A gene on chromosome 2p22.1 that encodes gem-associated protein 6, a member of the survival of motor neuron (SMN) complex. The SMN complex plays a key role in spliceosomal snRNP assembly in the cytoplasm and is required for pre-mRNA splicing in the nucleus. GEMIN6 interacts directly with GEMIN7, SNRPB, SNRPD2, SNRPD3 and SNRPE.
