Collection of small subunit (16S- and 16S-like) ribosomal RNA structures: 1994

Nucleic Acids Res. 1994 Sep;22(17):3502-7. doi: 10.1093/nar/22.17.3502.


A collection of diverse 16S and 16S-like rRNA secondary structure diagrams are available. This set of rRNAs contains representative structures from all of the major phylogenetic groupings--Archaea, (eu)Bacteria, and the nucleus, mitochondrion, and chloroplast of Eucarya. Within this broad phylogenetic sampling are examples of the major forms of structural diversity currently known for this class of rRNAs. These structure diagrams are available online through our computer-network WWW server and anonymous ftp, as well as from the author in hardcopy format.
