GEMIN7A gene on chromosome 19q13.32 that encodes gem-associated protein 7, 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. GEMIN7 interacts directly with GEMIN6, SNRPB, SNRPD2, SNRPD3 and SNRPE.
