Anti-NF-Y (a) antibody was prepared from monospecific antiserum by a multi-step procedure that includes delipidation, salt fractionation and ion exchange chromatography. A single precipitin arc was observed against anti-Rabbit Serum when assayed by immunoelectrophoresis.
The SMN1 gene is part of a 500 kb inverted duplication on chromosome 5q13. This duplicated region contains at least four genes and repetitive elements which make it prone to rearrangements and deletions. The repetitiveness and complexity of the sequence have also caused difficulty in determining the organization of this genomic region. The telomeric and centromeric copies of this gene are nearly identical and encode the same protein - survival motor neuron protein. The SMN complex plays a catalyst role in the assemble of small nuclear ribonucleoproteins, the building blocks of the spliceosome. Mutations in the SMN1 gene are known to cause spinal muscular atrophy 1/2.
