Molecular evolution of the HBII-52 snoRNA cluster.


HBII-52 is a human brain-specific C/D box snoRNA that potentially regulates the editing and/or alternative splicing of the serotonin receptor. Forty-two nearly identical copies of the HBII-52 gene are located immediately downstream of the SNRPN protein-coding gene in an imprinted locus associated with Prader-Willi syndrome. Other eutherian mammals, with… (More)
