Comment: The numbering is given as in the EMBL database entry for the gene: the M1 precursor RNA starts from position 320. The helix P6 (82-85/276-279 in M1 precursor, 401-404/595-598 in the entry) is called P13 in [2]. The structure is conserved in many sequences; for the RNase P database, see [4].
