Homo sapiens U71d snoRNA. This H/ACA box RNA is a close paralogue of U71a and U71b cloned from HeLa cells by Ganot et al. (1997b), and was found by the examination of conserved sequences in the host gene of U71a and U71b. Its expression was not experimentally verified. Like U71a and U71b, it is predicted to guide pseudouridylation of U406 in 18S rRNA (Ganot et al., 1997a). The pseudouridylation of this residue was confirmed by the same authors. U71a, U71b, U71d and a fourth paralogue, U71c, share the same host gene.
