Disease relevance of RNU86


High impact information on RNU86

  • Despite the overall homology, the three U86 snoRNAs do not show strong conservation of the sequence upstream from the box D and none of them displays significant sequence complementarity to rRNA or snRNA sequences, suggesting a role different from that of methylation [2].
  • In this study, to characterize HHV-6 IE2 gene products, polyclonal antibodies against four domains of the U86/87 open reading frame were generated by immunization of rabbits with bacterially-expressed proteins [1].
