small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein complex

id: GO:0005732
name: small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein complex
namespace: cellular_component
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: A ribonucleoprotein complex that contains an RNA molecule of the small nucleolar RNA (snoRNA) family and associated proteins. Most are involved in a step of processing of rRNA: cleavage, 2'-O-methylation, or pseudouridylation. The majority, though not all, fall into one of two classes, box C/D type or box H/ACA type.
