  • 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 study we have characterized nine novel human ACA snoRNAs (U64-U72). Structural probing of U64 RNA followed by systematic computer modeling of all known box ACA snoRNAs revealed that this class of snoRNAs is defined by a phylogenetically conserved secondary structure. The ACA snoRNAs fold into two hairpin… CONTINUE READING
