The self-cleaving RNA sequences, or ribozymes, in the genomic and antigenomic strands of hepatitis delta virus (HDV) RNA fold into structures that are similar to each other but distinct from those of small ribozymes associated with the RNA replicons that infect plants. HDV ribozymes have provided a tractable system for studying the mechanism of catalytic RNA, and results of biochemical and structural studies on the HDV ribozymes, from a number of labs, have enhanced our understanding and… CONTINUE READING
