Identification of the Same Na+-Specific DNAzyme Motif from Two In Vitro Selections Under Different Conditions


We report an investigation of the functional relationship between two independently selected RNA-cleaving DNAzymes, NaA43, and Ce13, through in vitro selection. The NaA43 DNAzyme was obtained through a combination of gel-based and column-based in vitro selection in the presence of Na+ and reported to be highly selective for Na+ over other metal ions. The… (More)
