The human pathogenic hepatitis delta virus (HDV) employs a unique self-cleaving catalytic RNA motif, the HDV ribozyme, during double-rolling circle replication. Fluorescence spectroscopy, circular dichroism, terbium(III) footprinting, and X-ray crystallography of precursor and product forms have revealed that a conformational change accompanies catalysis.(More)
