inv encodes invasin, which is the primary invasion factor of Yersinia enterocolitica. inv expression in vitro is regulated in response to temperature, pH, and growth phase. In vitro, inv is maximally expressed at 26 degrees C and repressed at 37 degrees C at neutral pH but, when the pH of the media is adjusted to 5.5, levels of inv expression at 37 degrees(More)
The RNA substrate-binding site of the Tetrahymena ribozyme is connected to the catalytic core by the joining region J1/2. Although J1/2 is not conserved among group I introns, small insertions or deletions in this sequence have dramatic effects, enhancing the turnover number and sequence specificity of ribozyme-catalyzed RNA cleavage.
