SNORA71Bsmall nucleolar RNA, H/ACA box 71B
snoid : SR0000291
Length : 139
Abstract : Homo sapiens U71b snoRNA. This H/ACA box RNA was cloned from HeLa cells by Ganot et al. (1997b). Like its close paralogue U71a, 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. The published sequence differs from the genomic sequence by 2nts. U71b and three related copies, U71a, U71c and U71d, share the same host gene.
GenBank accession number : Y11166
