The survival motor neuron (SMN) complex is a macromolecular structure composed of SMN, Gemin2-8 and Unrip. The best-documented function of the SMN complex concerns the assembly of the spliceosome building blocks, uridine-rich small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (UsnRNPs). SMN deficiency results in Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a disorder characterised by degeneration of spinal cord motor neurons and progressive muscular weakness.
