Role of RNA chaperones in virus replication.


RNA molecules are functionally diverse in part due to their extreme structural flexibility that allows rapid regulation by refolding. RNA folding could be a difficult process as often molecules adopt a spatial conformation that is very stable but not biologically functional, named a kinetic trap. RNA chaperones are non-specific RNA binding proteins that… (More)
