An analysis of structural influences on selection in RNA genes.

Abstract:

Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) are transcripts that do not code for protein but rather function as RNA in catalytic, regulatory, or structural roles in the cell. ncRNAs are involved in universally conserved biological processes, including protein synthesis and gene regulation, and have more specific roles, such as in X-chromosome inactivation in eutherian mammals. In this paper, we propose and investigate a hypothesis for patterns of sequence selection in structurally conserved ncRNAs. Previous atte...
