Several studies have generated computer-based predictions of secondary structure of the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of Dengue virus (DEN); however, experimental verification of the formation of these structures in vitro is lacking. This study assessed the congruence of Mfold predictions of secondary structure of the core region of the DEN type 4 3' UTR with nuclease maps of this region. Maps and predictions were largely consistent. Maps supported the existence of previously predicted… CONTINUE READING
