FinO is an RNA chaperone that facilitates sense-antisense RNA interactions.

Abstract

The protein FinO represses F-plasmid conjugative transfer by facilitating interactions between the mRNA of the major F-plasmid transcriptional activator, TraJ, and an antisense RNA, FinP. FinO is known to bind stem-loop structures in both FinP and traJ RNAs; however, the mechanism by which FinO facilitates sense-antisense pairing is poorly understood. Here… (More)
