Comparison of solution conformations and stabilities of modified helix 69 rRNA analogs from bacteria and human.

The helix 69 (H69) region of the large subunit (28S) ribosomal RNA (rRNA) of Homo sapiens contains five pseudouridine (Ψ) residues out of 19 total nucleotides, three of which are highly conserved. In this study, the effects of this abundant modified nucleotide on the structure and stability of H69 were compared with those of uridine in double-stranded (stem… CONTINUE READING
