Homo sapiens C/D box snoRNA SNORD127. This C/D box snoRNA was characterized by Yang et al. (2006) using the snoSeeker software. Its expression was experimentally verified by Northern blot. It is predicted to guide the 2’O-ribose methylation of 18S rRNA G1447. Methylation at that position was established by Maden and Salim(1974).
This snoRNA is incorrectly named SNORD118 in Yang et al. (2006) and in GenBank file AM413025, and should not be confused with U8 (HGCN approved symbol SNORD118).
