NUMEROUS attempts have been made to deduce a secondary structure of 5S RNA1–4. Differing approaches have yielded various structures, but each turns out to be inconsistent with either physical, chemical, biochemical, or comparative evidence. Clearly the situation is not analogous to that which obtained for transfer RNA (tRNA). There is, however, at least one fundamental difference between the two molecules. The functional 5S RNA molecule is at all times an integral part of the 50S ribosomal…

Nucleotide sequence of Drosophila melanogaster 5S RNA: Evidence for a general 5S RNA model
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of Drosophila 5S RNA is reported, its relationship with other 5SRNA sequences are discussed and it is shown that it can be folded into a secondary structure very similar to that which has been proposed on an experimental basis for Chlorda5S RNA.
Molecular evolution of 5S RNA

  • 2004
TLDR
By comparing the nucleotide alignment from the juxtaposed 5S RNA secondary structures, a phylogenic tree of nineteen organisms was constructed and found that prokaryotic and eukaryotic 5S RNAs are quite similar to each other, except for a difference in a specific region.
Comparison of eubacterial and eukaryotic 5S RNA structures: a chemical modification study.
TLDR
The 5S RNAs from Bacillus stearothermophilus and Saccharomyces cerevisiae were probed by nucleotide-specific reagents, with a view to compare and contrast their higher order structures, and strong evidence is provided for loop D of the eukaryotic RNA being involved in a tertiary interaction.
How Do Protein L18 and 5S RNA Interact
The complex of 5S RNA and proteins L18 and L25 from Escherichia coli has proved useful for studying both the chemistry of protein-RNA interactions and for examining cooperative assembly effects
Does 5S RNA function by a switch between two secondary structures?
TLDR
It is proposed that comparative sequence analysis suggests two different functional structures for prokaryotic 5S RNA, consistent with enzymatic digestion14 and chemical modification1,5 results on native 5SRNA, if allowance is made for protection of residues by tertiary bonding as well as secondary structure.
Investigations on the secondary structure of 5S-ribonucleic acids by means of pattern recognition
Abstract Since the sequence of nucleotides for 5S-ribonucleic acid (5S-RNA) from E. coli was reported in 1967, the secondary structure of this RNA molecule has been discussed. As procaryotic 5S-RNA
RNA Structure: Reading the Ribosome
TLDR
Nearly all of the possible types of RNA tertiary interactions have been found in ribosomal RNA and one of these, an abundant tertiary structural motif called the A-minor interaction, has been shown to participate in both aminoacyl-transfer RNA selection and in peptidyl transferase.
Secondary structure of the central region of bacteriophage MS2 RNA. Conservation and biological significance.
TLDR
A secondary structure model for the central region of the group I phage MS2, which contains three translational start sites, as well as the binding sites for the coat protein and the replicase enzyme, is developed.
Secondary structure of prokaryotic 5S ribosomal ribonucleic acids: a study with ribonucleases.
TLDR
The structures of 5S ribosomal RNAs from Escherichia coli and Bacillus stearothermophilus were examined by using ribonucleases A, T1, and T2 and a double helix specific cobra venom ribonuclease to distinguish between primary and secondary cutting positions and also to establish the relative degree of cutting.
The 5S rRNA loop E: chemical probing and phylogenetic data versus crystal structure.
TLDR
The 3D structure is analyzed with reference to molecular phylogeny data to discover what alternative base pairings are geometrically compatible with the structure, and each non-Watson-Crick pair could be characterized by a phylogenetic signature of variations between isosteric-like pairings.

Nucleotide sequence of Bacillus megaterium 5 S RNA
TLDR
Comparisons have convincingly shown the presence of a base paired region the existence of which had previously been speculative at best, and the important relation between environmental conditions and primary sequence, and further inquiry of this type should be fruitful if the choice of brganisms is judiciously made.
Sequence and conformation of 5 S RNA from Chlorella cytoplasmic ribosomes: comparison with other 5 S RNA molecules.
TLDR
The sequence of Chlorella cytoplasmic 5 S RNA has been determined by fingerprinting techniques and the conformation of the molecule in solution is quite different from that of other sequenced 5 S RNAs.
Nucleotide sequence of yeast 5 S ribosomal RNA
TLDR
The primary sequence of Saccharomyces carlsbergensis 5 S RNA is reported, a novel feature of this RNA, which distinguishes it from the other 5 SRNA's studied, is the occurrence of a pppG residue at the 5'-terminus.
The involvement of 5S RNA in the binding of tRNA to ribosomes.
TLDR
5S RNA is most likely part of a site with which the TψC-loop of tRNA interacts on the ribosome, and could be abolished by selective chemical modification of two adenines in 5S RNA.

TLDR
Possible ways of arranging base paris which are compatible with the primary structure of 5 S RNA from Escherichia coli and KB cells are discussed and it is unlikely that higher helical contgents are possible unless shorter helices are included.

TLDR
The importance of the 5 S RNA conformation for its proper insertion in the 50 S subunit is confirmed and good experimental evidence has been obtained in favour of the binding of protein L25 to two distant regions of the5 S RNA molecule, which must have a bihelical secondary structure.
