Thermodynamic parameters are reported for hairpin formation in 1 M NaCl by RNA sequences of the type GGXANmAYCC, where XY is the set of four Watson-Crick base pairs and the underlined loop sequences are three to nine nucleotides. A nearest neighbor analysis of the data indicates the free energy of loop formation at 37 degrees C is dependent upon loop size(More)
Thermodynamic parameters are reported for hairpin formation in 1 M NaCl by RNA sequences of the type GGXANmAYCC, where XY is the wobble base pair, GU or UG, and the underlined loop sequences are three to eight nucleotides. A nearest-neighbor analysis indicates the free energy of loop formation is dependent upon loop size and closing base pair. Hairpin loops(More)
