Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • Others regulate RNA processing (e.g. M1 RNA in RNase P, snRNAs and snoRNAs) and RNA editing (guide RNAs).

    Advanced Information: The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

  • RNase P was part of the active center of the enzyme, by analogy to the then current picture of the ribosome.

    The RNA World

  • This enzyme, ribonuclease P (RNase P), was readily identifiable.

    The RNA World

  • In Stark's experiment, the test showed that the RNA was essential for RNase P function.

    The RNA World

  • The total purification of RNase P proved to be a very difficult task.

    The RNA World

  • The interesting thing is that when you study the distribution based on RNase, you find that all the active-site residues were conserved after gene duplication, as was the RNA-binding site.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • Which means that the ancestral RNase genes were not pseudogenes that evolved functions, but vice versa, proteins with functions that became pseudogenes in some lineages.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • The authors of the experiment interpret this situation by making the hypothesis that there could be “conserved features” of bacterial RNase P RNA and protein subunits essential for their primary functional activity in vivo.

    A Top-down Approach

  • Mut-7 of C. elegans, required for transposon silencing and RNA interference, is a homolog of Werner syndrome helicase and RNase D. Cell 99, 133-141.

    Advanced Information: The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

  • Himmel and Arnold report the crystal structure of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase complexed with an inhibitor of RNase H activity, suggesting intriguing new strategies for hitting HIV where it could really hurt.
