A reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) approach was used to clone a cDNA encoding the Euglena gracilis homolog of yeast Cbf5p, a protein component of the box H/ACA class of snoRNPs that mediate pseudouridine formation in eukaryotic rRNA. Cbf5p is a putative pseudouridine synthase, and the Euglena homolog is the first full-length Cbf5p… CONTINUE READING
