A Newly Made RNA Strand Bolsters Ideas About How Life On Earth Began
RNA molecule is able to synthesize other RNAs, a feat believed central to the origin of life
Nucleoside analogue
Nucleoside analogues are nucleosides which contain a nucleic acid analogue and a sugar. Nucleotide analogs are nucleotides which contain a nucleic acid analogue, a sugar and one to three phosphate gro...
RNA world hypothesis
The RNA world hypothesis proposes that self-replicating ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules were precursors to all current life on Earth. It is generally accepted that current life on Earth descends from...

FluoProbes
The FluoProbes series of fluorescent dyes were developed by Interchim to improve performances of standard fluorophores. They are designed for labeling biomolecules, cells, tissues or beads in advanced...
Riboswitch
In molecular biology, a riboswitch is a regulatory segment of a messenger RNA molecule that binds a small molecule, resulting in a change in production of the proteins encoded by the mRNA. Thus, an m...

Ribozyme
Ribozymes (ribonucleic acid enzymes), also termed catalytic RNA, are RNA molecules that are capable of catalyzing specific biochemical reactions, similar to the action of protein enzymes. The 1982 dis...
