Chemical and enzymatic probing of spatial structure of the omega leader of tobacco mosaic virus RNA


The 5′-untranslated sequence of tobacco mosaic virus RNA — the so-called omega leader — exhibits features of a translational enhancer of homologous and heterologous mRNAs. The absence of guanylic residues, the presence of multiple trinucleotide CAA repeats in its central region, and the low predictable probability of the formation of an extensive secondary… (More)
