SMN (survival motor neuron) was discovered as a candidate gene, located in chromosome 5q13, for the fatal autosomal Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) disorder. The SMN gene was missing or interrupted in a significant number of patients with SMA. The SMN protein is 294 amino acids and migrates with apparent molecular weight of 40 kDa. In addition to the cytoplasm, other studies localized SMN in dots of 0.1-1.0 µm within the nucleus. These novel nuclear structures were named gems and found associated to coiled bodies. It was also found that SMN interacts with the RGG box of hnRNP U and fibrillarin. Therefore, the biochemical function of SMN may be in the regulation of mRNA metabolism.

1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
