Modulation of RNA tertiary folding by incorporation of caged nucleotides

Claudia Höbartner, Scott K. Silverman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(Figure Presented) Knock it off: Individual RNA nucleotides with a caged nucleobase were incorporated, through their phosphoramidites, into a 160-mer RNA molecule that adopts a specific tertiary structure (see picture). Position-dependent local and global effects on RNA structure were observed, and photocleavage of the caging group was seen to restore the native folding.
