U6 small nuclear RNAs are part of the splicing machinery. They exhibit several unique features setting them appart from other snRNAs. Reports of introns in structured non-coding RNAs have been very rare. U6 genes, however, were found to be interrupted by an intron in several Schizosaccharomyces species and in 2 Basidiomycota. We conducted a homology search across 147 currently available fungal genome and identified the U6 genes in all but 2 of them. A detailed comparison of their sequences and… CONTINUE READING
