LSM6 is a symbol for the gene, LSM6 homolog, U6 small nuclear RNA and mRNA degradation associated, in humans. Other names include: U6 snRNA-associated Sm-like protein LSm6; LSM6 homolog, U6 small nuclear RNA associated (S. cerevisiae); YDR378C. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 80 and a mass of 9.1 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. LSM6 is a member of the SnRNP Sm proteins family, SmF/LSm6 subfamily. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Mouse, Yeast, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
