Allosteric control of ribozyme catalysis by using DNA constraints

Elena Zelin, Scott K. Silverman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Strings attached. Covalent attachment of two DNA strands to RNA enabled allosteric control of hammerhead ribozyme catalysis by formation of a double-stranded DNA constraint, as illustrated in the figure. The constraint acted by disrupting RNA tertiary structure while leaving the secondary structure essentially intact. (Figure Presented)
