In order to search the RNA-binding peptides, selection from randomized peptides containing Arg-rich motif was carried out using rRNA-immobilized column. As a result of the selection for 16S- and 23S-rRNA from E. coli, six peptides were identified to be the rRNA-binding peptide by MALDI-TOF MS. These peptides contained R, N, Q, or G at three randomized… CONTINUE READING
