Clan: SNORD88 (CL00071)


SNORD88 clan

The SNORD88 clan contains the RNA families SNORD88, snR76 and snoR118. Researchers at the human snoRNA database (snoRNABase) have established that the following human and S. cerevisiae snoRNAs target modifications on orthologous positions of the ribosome: SNORD88 and snR76 [1]. The following bioinformatic methods were used to confirm the relationship between these families: HMMER3 [2].

This clan contains 3 families and the total number of sequence regions in the clan is 518.
