Literature associating SMG6 and Miller-Dieker lissencephaly syndrome
SMG6 nonsense mediated mRNA decay factor; Component of the telomerase ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex that is essential for the replication of chromosome termini. May have a general role in telomere regulation. Promotes in vitro the ability of TERT to elongate telomeres. Overexpression induces telomere uncapping, chromosomal end-to-end fusions (telomeric DNA persists at the fusion points) and did not perturb TRF2 telomeric localization. Binds to the single-stranded 5'- (GTGTGG)(4)GTGT-3' telomeric DNA, but not to a telomerase RNA template component (TER).
Synonyms: SMG6, SMG6p, hSMG6, I3L176, I3L1W8 ...
