The 4.5S RNA gene from Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

The essential 4.5S RNA of Escherichia coli contains a structural motif, which is also present in RNAs from other organisms, i.e. Bacillus subtilis scRNA, Halobacterium halobium 7S RNA and eukaryotic 7SL RNAs. This suggests a common function in all organisms, which could be related to protein translocation, since 7SL RNA is essential for this process in… CONTINUE READING
