The nucleotide sequence of nuclear 4.8S RNA has been determined. The 4.8S RNA consists of 108 nucleotide residues with one mole each of m2G, m6A and Gm, 3 moles each of ψ and Am and 4 moles of Cm as modified nucleosides. This RNA has pppG as the 5′-terminal nucleotide and contains a sequence complementary to some of the splice junctions of mRNA precursors.
