The conformation of the last 201 nucleotides located at the 3'-end of brome mosaic virus (BMV) RNAs was investigated in solution using different chemical and enzymatic probes. Bases were probed with dimethylsulfate (which methylates N-1 positions of A, N-3 positions of C and N-7 positions of G), a carbodiimide (which modifies N-1 positions of G and N-3 positions of U) and diethylpyrocarbonate (which modifies N-7 positions of A). Ribonucleases T1, U2 and S1 were used to map unpaired nucleotides… CONTINUE READING
