GeneCards Summary for SNORA68 Gene
SNORA68 (Small Nucleolar RNA, H/ACA Box 68) is an RNA Gene, and is affiliated with the snoRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for SNORA68 Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
nc_conserved_region: Non-coding region of sequence similarity by descent from a common ancestor.
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 SNORA68: U68 is a member of the H/ACA class of small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) which act as guides in the the modification of uridines to pseudouridines .
