GeneCards Summary for SNORD38C Gene
SNORD38C (Small Nucleolar RNA, C/D Box 38C) is an RNA Gene, and is affiliated with the snoRNA class.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for SNORD38C 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 SNORD38: U38 is a member of the C/D class of snoRNA which contain the C (UGAUGA) and D (CUGA) box motifs. U38 is located in introns 4 and 5 of ribosomal protein S8 in human and in homologous genes in mouse and cow . U38 guides the methylation of 2'-O-ribose residues in 28S rRNA. Mouse MBII-329 snoRNA is homologous to U38 .
