RNA Helicases: Versatile ATP-Driven Nanomotors
Abstract:RNA helicases are a large family of molecular motors that utilize nucleoside triphosphates to unwind RNA duplexes and to remodel RNA protein complexes. In this review, we discuss the structure and function of RNA helicases with an emphasis on the potential application of these enzymes to control conformational changes in nanoassemblies that contain RNA.
