Pre-mRNA-processing factor 6 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PRPF6 gene.[1][2][3]

The protein encoded by this gene appears to be involved in pre-mRNA splicing, possibly acting as a bridging factor between U5 and U4/U6 snRNPs in formation of the spliceosome. The encoded protein also can bind androgen receptor, providing a link between transcriptional activation and splicing.[3]


PRPF6 has been shown to interact with TXNL4B,[4] ARAF[5][6] and Androgen receptor.[7]
