RNA folding

Curr Opin Struct Biol. 1995 Jun;5(3):303-10. doi: 10.1016/0959-440x(95)80091-3.


The number of known motifs for RNA folding and RNA tertiary organization is expanding rapidly as we learn more about the diverse biological functions of RNA. Problems in protein and RNA folding have melded in recent investigations of ribonucleoprotein folding. Theoretical and experimental models are rapidly being developed for the pathways and stabilizing forces involved in RNA folding.
