Homo sapiens U71a snoRNA.
This H/ACA box RNA was cloned from HeLa cells by Ganot et al. (1997b). Like it close paralogue U71b, it is predicted to guide the pseudouridylation of U406 in 18S rRNA (Ganot et al. (1997a). The pseudouridylation of this residue was confirmed by the same authors. U71a and three related copies, U71b, U71c and U71d, share the same host gene.
