The secondary structures of human hY1 and hY5 RNAs were determined using both chemical modification techniques and enzymatic structure probing. The results indicate that both for hY1 and for hY5 RNA the secondary structure largely corresponds to the structure predicted by sequence alignment and computerized energy-minimization. However, some important(More)
The La (SS-B) autoimmune antigen is an RNA-binding protein that is present in both nucleus and cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells. The spectrum of RNAs that interact with the La antigen includes species which also bind to the interferon-inducible protein kinase PKR. We have investigated whether the La antigen can regulate the activity of PKR and have observed(More)
