Homo sapiens C/D box snoRNA U31. This snoRNA was initially characterized as a conserved intronic sequence in the U22 host gene, UGH. Other introns of the same gene host the C/D box snoRNAs U26-U30 (Tycowski, Shu and Steitz, 1996). U31 was postulated to guide the 2'O-ribose methylation of 28S rRNA G4166 by Kiss-Laszlo et al. (1996), although this methylated base was not mapped by Maden (1990).
