|SNORD25||small nucleolar RNA, C/D box 25|
Homo sapiens C/D box snoRNA U25. This snoRNA was initially characterized as a conserved intronic sequence in the U22 host gene, UHG. Other introns of the same gene host the C/D box snoRNAs U26-U31 (Tycowski, Shu and Steitz, 1996). U25 was postulated to guide the 2'O-ribose methylation of 18S rRNA G1490 by Kiss-Laszlo et al. (1996). This was experimentally verifed in Xenopus oocytes by Tycowski et al. (1996).|
