GeneCards Summary for SNORD25 Gene
SNORD25 (Small Nucleolar RNA, C/D Box 25) is an RNA Gene, and is affiliated with the snoRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for SNORD25 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 SNORD25: U25 is a member of the C/D class of snoRNA which contain the C (UGAUGA) and D (CUGA) box motifs. U25 is found in gene clusters in plants , and within the U22 snoRNA host gene (UHG) in mammals . U25 is thought to as a 2'-O-ribose methylation guide for ribosomal RNA. This RNA has also been named snoRNA R73 in some plants.
