Circularity of the ribonucleic acids associated with cadang-cadang disease.


The ribonucleic acids, ccRNA-1 and ceRNA-2, associated with cadang-cadang disease are circular single-stranded molecules comprising 310 +/- 3 nucleotides and 438 +/- 5 nucleotides, respectively; their molecular weights are estimated to be 1.05 and 1.49 x 10(5) daltons. Therefore ceRNA-2 appears not to be a dimer of ccRNA-1, although it is known to have… (More)
