Splice factor that binds to the single stranded 3'AG at the exon/intron border and promotes its utilization in the second catalytic step. Involved in the regulation of alternative splicing and the utilization of cryptic splice sites. Promotes the utilization of a cryptic splice site created by the beta-110 mutation in the HBB gene. The resulting frameshift leads to sickle cell anemia. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: RNA splicing; RNA-binding; Spliceosome
