PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Annotation of 7 unclassified ncRNA candidates

Peter F Stadler   (2010-02-19 11:48)  University of Leipzig email

Seven of the eight "unclassified ncRNA candidates" can be readily annotated as homologs of well-known ncRNAs. Numbering the eight sequences in the order of appearance at the end of the article's Supplementary File 1, we have:

unc-1 = mitochondrial tRNA-Met (partial)
unc-3 = mitochondrial tRNA-Thr (partial)
unc-4 = mitochondrial tRNA-Lys
unc-5 = mitochondrial tRNA-Trp (+short 5' extension)
unc-2 = selenocysteine tRNA (tRNA-SeC)
unc-6 = SNORA31 paralog (box H/ACA snoRNA)
unc-8 = SNORA79 (box H/ACA snoRNA)

A short Technical Report detailing the evidence for these annotations can be found at
