Pre-mRNA splicing occurs in 2 sequential transesterification steps. The protein encoded by the PRPF8 gene is a component of both U2- and U12-dependent spliceosomes, and found to be essential for the catalytic step II in pre-mRNA splicing process. It contains several WD repeats, which function in protein-protein interactions. This protein has a sequence similarity to yeast Prp8 protein (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008). Mutations in the PRPF8 gene cause development of Retinitis pigmentosa 13 (RP13) characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors (van Lith-Verhoeven et al. 2002).
