Protein-RNA interactions are essential in living organisms and they are involved in very different and important cellular processes. Thus, understanding protein-RNA recognition at molecular level is a key goal not only from a basic biological point of view but also for biotechnological and therapeutic purposes. On basis of the most updated available set of nonredundant X-ray structures of protein-RNA complexes, we have computed protein-RNA interface propensities for ribonucleotides and amino… CONTINUE READING
