GeneCards Summary for RNU7-179P Gene
RNU7-179P (RNA, U7 Small Nuclear 179 Pseudogene) is a Pseudogene, and is affiliated with the snRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for RNU7-179P Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
snRNA: A small nuclear RNA molecule involved in pre-mRNA splicing and processing.
U7 small nuclear RNA: Animal histone pre-mRNAs are spliced by a different mechanism than nuclear pre-mRNAs and self-splicing introns. This processing involves the U7 snRNP, which contains only one RNA species: U7. The 5' end of U7 RNA is thought to base-pair to a conserved spacer element downstream of the cleavage site in histone pre-mRNA. This family contains a number of annotated U7 pseudogenes.
