We have shown previously that groups of U14 snoRNA genes are clustered with other, novel snoRNAs in maize. These genes are transcribed polycistronically from an upstream promoter to give a precursor snoRNA, which is processed by a splicing-independent mechanism. The clusters contain both box C/D snoRNAs, thought to guide rRNA O-ribose methylations, and the… CONTINUE READING
