  • Target

    • Function
      Required for ribosome biogenesis and telomere maintenance. Part of the H/ACA small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (H/ACA snoRNP) complex, which catalyzes pseudouridylation of rRNA. This involves the isomerization of uridine such that the ribose is subsequently attached to C5, instead of the normal N1. Each rRNA can contain up to 100 pseudouridine ("psi") residues, which may serve to stabilize the conformation of rRNAs. May also be required for correct processing or intranuclear trafficking of TERC, the RNA component of the telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) holoenzyme.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in brain, colon, heart, kidney, ovary, pancreas, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, small intestine, spleen, testis and thymus. Also expressed at lower levels in the liver.
    • Involvement in disease
      Dyskeratosis congenita, autosomal recessive, 2
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the ribosomal protein L7Ae family.
    • Developmental stage
      Transcript peaks at G1/S transition.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus > nucleolus. Nucleus > Cajal body. Also localized to Cajal bodies.
