Oligonucleotide facilitators enhance the catalytic activity of RNA-cleaving DNA enzymes.


From in vitro selection studies, DNA structures have been found that cleave target RNA sequence specifically and show a certain similarity to the well-investigated hammerhead ribozymes. Such DNA enzymes are more resistant to nuclease-mediated degradation than RNA enzymes. On the other hand, their cleavage activity is lower than the activity of hammerhead… (More)
