Small Cajal body specific RNA 24 (also known as scaRNA24 or ACA12) is a small nucleolar RNA found in Cajal bodies and believed to be involved in the pseudouridylation (isomerisation of uridine to pseudouridine) of U6 spliceosomal RNA.

scaRNAs are a specific class of small nucleolar RNAs that localise to the Cajal bodies and guide the modification of RNA polymerase II transcribed spliceosomal RNAs U1, U2, U4, U5 and U12.[1]

ACA12 belongs to the H/ACA box class of guide RNAs as it has the predicted hairpin-hinge-hairpin-tail structure,the conserved H/ACA-box motifs and is found associated with GAR1 protein.[2] ACA12 is predicted to guide the pseudouridylation of residue U40 of the spliceosomal U6 snRNA.[2][3]
