GeneCards Summary for SNORA70D Gene
SNORA70D (Small Nucleolar RNA, H/ACA Box 70D) is a RNA Gene, and belongs to snoRNA RNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for SNORA70D 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 SNORA70: snoRNA U70 seems to be exclusive to mammals and is a member of the H/ACA class of snoRNA which contain H (ANANNA) and ACA box motifs. H/ACA box snoRNAs are involved in the conversion of uridines to pseudouridines (5-ribosyluracil) a constituent of structural RNAs (transfer, ribosomal, small nuclear, and small nucleolar) [1,2].
