This model represents a noncoding RNA gene. Some ncRNA genes have transformed into, or become assimilated into transposons. Others occur in sufficient copy number that ab initio repeat finders may classify them as repetitive elements. This entry is used to correctly identify the gene and its pseudogenes and prevent misannotation.
U6 snRNA (spliceosomal RNA) gene / pseudogene
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
U6 snRNA genes are multicopy, and have spawned many hundreds of pseudogenes in human.
Evidence for base-pairing between mammalian U2 and U6 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles.

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 107 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 100.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
