KnotInFrame: prediction of −1 ribosomal frameshift events

Abstract

Programmed -1 ribosomal frameshift (-1 PRF) allows for alternative reading frames within one mRNA. First found in several viruses, it is now believed to exist in all kingdoms of life. Strong stimulators for -1 PRF are a heptameric slippery site and an RNA pseudoknot. Here, we present a new algorithm KnotInFrame, for the automatic detection of -1 PRF signals… (More)
