RNA loop-loop interactions are frequently used to trigger initial recognition between two RNA molecules. In this review, we present selected well-documented cases that illustrate the diversity of biological processes using RNA loop-loop recognition properties. The first one is related to natural antisense RNAs that play a variety of regulatory functions in bacteria and their extra-chromosomal elements. The second one concerns the dimerization of HIV-1 genomic RNA, which is responsible for the… CONTINUE READING
