GeneCards Summary for SNORA17 Gene
SNORA17 (Small Nucleolar RNA, H/ACA Box 17) is an RNA Gene, and is affiliated with the snoRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for SNORA17 Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
H_ACA_box_snoRNA: Members of the box H/ACA family contain an ACA triplet, exactly 3 nt upstream from the 3' end and an H-box in a hinge region that links two structurally similar functional domains of the molecule. Both boxes are important for snoRNA biosynthesis and function. A few box H/ACA snoRNAs are involved in rRNA processing; most others are known or predicted to participate in selection of uridine nucleosides in rRNA to be converted to pseudouridines. Site selection is mediated by direct base pairing of the snoRNA with rRNA through one or both targeting domains.
Small nucleolar RNA SNORA17: snoRNA ACA 17 belongs to the H/ACA family of snoRNAs and is predicted to guide pseudouridylation of the 28S rRNA at positions U4659 and U4598. It shares the same host gene together with ACA43. NB This family has a high threshold value to exclude a large number of closely related sequences that do not appear to have conserved H and ACA boxes, and may be pseudogenes.
