Site-Specific Pseudouridine Formation in Preribosomal RNA Is Guided by Small Nucleolar RNAs
During the nucleolar maturation of eukaryotic ribosomal RNAs, many selected uridines are converted into pseudouridine by a thus far undefined mechanism. The nucleolus contains a large number of smallExpand

The family of box ACA small nucleolar RNAs is defined by an evolutionarily conserved secondary structure and ubiquitous sequence elements essential for RNA accumulation.
Eukaryotic cells contain a large number of small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs). A major family of snoRNAs features a consensus ACA motif positioned 3 nucleotides from the 3' end of the RNA. In this studyExpand

Elements essential for accumulation and function of small nucleolar RNAs directing site‐specific pseudouridylation of ribosomal RNAs
During site‐specific pseudouridylation of eukaryotic rRNAs, selection of correct substrate uridines for isomerization into pseudouridine is directed by small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs). TheExpand

Nucleolar Factors Direct the 2′-O-Ribose Methylation and Pseudouridylation of U6 Spliceosomal RNA
ABSTRACT The nucleolus has long been known as a functionally highly specialized subnuclear compartment where synthesis, posttranscriptional modification, and processing of cytoplasmic rRNAs takeExpand
