FNAs Talk

  • Kevin Baldridge 17:24, 11 February 2013 (EST):The first thing I see is that small non-coding RNAs are not represented in this group. Maybe it would be a good idea to add a section about prokaryotic small RNAs or eukaryotic micro- or piwi-interacting RNAs that are involved in pre-translational regulation.
  • Benjamin Gilman 17:59, 11 February 2013 (EST): There's been been some work done on evolving deoxyribozymes (with or without unnatural bases) that catalyze a range of organic and inorganic synthesis reactions. Checking out some papers from Bruce Eaton might be a good place to start.
  • Alvaro E. Rodriguez M. 21:16, 11 February 2013 (EST):Hello Kevin he reason why none of the small non-coding RNAs are mentioned is that they do no perform any type of catalysis/ligand binding on their own.
  • Alvaro E. Rodriguez M. 21:16, 11 February 2013 (EST): Hey, Ben do you happen to have a copy of the RNA world article were you mention RNase P as being discovered much earlier. I also appreciate the link to the Bruce Eaton page as it would be helpful to include his work in this wiki page.
