GeneCards Summary for SNORD116-11 Gene
SNORD116-11 (Small Nucleolar RNA, C/D Box 116-11) is an RNA Gene, and is affiliated with the snoRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for SNORD116-11 Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
C_D_box_snoRNA: Most box C/D snoRNAs also contain long (>10 nt) sequences complementary to rRNA. Boxes C and D, as well as boxes C' and D', are usually located in close proximity, and form a structure known as the box C/D motif. This motif is important for snoRNA stability, processing, nucleolar targeting and function. A small number of box C/D snoRNAs are involved in rRNA processing; most, however, are known or predicted to serve as guide RNAs in ribose methylation of rRNA. Targeting involves direct base pairing of the snoRNA at the rRNA site to be modified and selection of a rRNA nucleotide a fixed distance from box D or D'.
Small nucleolar RNA SNORD116: HBII-85 is a member of the C/D class of snoRNAs, which contain the C (UGAUGA) and D (CUGA) box motifs. HBII-85 is encoded in a tandemly repeated array with another C/D snoRNA, HBII-52, in the Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) region of chromosome 15. Unlike most other snoRNAs, HBII-85 is expressed prevalently in the brain (but is absent in PWS patients) and lacks any significant complementarity with ribosomal RNA.
