Abstract: Background Box C/D snoRNPs are responsible for rRNA methylation and processing, and are formed by snoRNAs and four conserved proteins, Nop1, Nop56, Nop58 and Snu13. The snoRNP assembly is a stepwise process, involving other protein complexes, among which the R2TP and Hsp90 chaperone. Nop17, also known as Pih1, has…

Mapping of the Chemical Modifications of rRNAs

Chemical modification of biomolecules is an impressive way of nature to expand their functional diversity. Like DNA and proteins, RNA molecules also undergo a variety of chemical modifications that allow them to enrich their topological potential and perform a variety of functions that go beyond their capacity to encode proteins…
