Eukaryal Cbf5 is the catalytic subunit of H/ACA small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (H/ACA snoRNPs) complex. Catalyzes the pseudouridylation of rRNA (including 5S and 5.8S rRNA) and small RNAs (snRNAs, snoRNAs). Contains one PUA domain. Works with 3 other subunits Gar1p, Nop10p, Nhp2p. A fifth protein (Shq1) is required for H/ACA RNP biogenenesis. In Eukarya, H/ACA RNPs are essential for three fundamental cellular processes: protein synthesis, mRNA splicing, and maintenance of genome integrity. For detailed information on modified positions see the snoRNA table ( ).
