Homo sapiens C/D box snoRNA U33. This snoRNA is the human orthologue of mouse U33 snoRNA, initially characterized by a bioinformatics search for C/D motives in a vertebrate intron database (Nicoloso et al. 1996). It is predicted to guide the 2'O-ribose methylation of 18S rRNA U1326. Interestingly, this nucleotide is also pseudo-uridinated (Maden and Wakeman, 1988), but the corresponding guide remains unknown. U33 share the same host gene with the C/D box snoRNAs U32A, U34 and U35A (RPL13A).
