The hammerhead ribozyme (HHR) is one of smallest catalytic RNAs, composed of a catalytic core and three stems; it undergoes self-cleavage in the presence of divalent magnesium ions (Mg2+) or other cations. It is hypothesized that the function and metabolism of RNAs might be regulated via interaction with lipid membranes in the prebiotic world. Using(More)
The surface properties of transfer RNA (tRNA) were analyzed using a poly(ethylene glycol)/dextran aqueous two-phase system (ATPS), where the surface net hydrophobicity (HFS) and the local hydrophobicity (LH) were evaluated based on the partition coefficient of tRNA in the ATPS. According to the evaluated HFS values, the surface of the tRNA molecule was(More)
