CONCEPT NAME

Catalytic RNA

DESCRIPTION

Catalytic RNA (ribonucleic acid) are RNA molecules that have enzyme activity. The classic example is the hammerhead ribozyme. Catalytic RNAs are involved in a number of biological processes, including RNA processing and protein synthesis. Discovery of catalytic RNA contributed to the hypothesis of an 'RNA world', describing the origin of life as starting from RNA.

    14 skos:historyNote [skos:definition - 2014.01.21] RNA that has catalytic activity. The catalytic RNA sequence folds to form a complex surface that can function as an enzyme in reactions with itself and other molecules. It may function even in the absence of protein. There are numerous examples of RNA species that are acted upon by catalytic RNA, however the scope of this enzyme class is not limited to a particular type of substrate.
