Dictionary » R » Ribozyme



ribozyme, or rna enzyme, is a rna molecule that act as enzymes, often found to catalyze cleavage of either its own or other rnas. It has also been found to catalyze the aminotransferase activity of the ribosome.

drink water, orange juice or Cola before eating?

not all enzymes are proteins, e.g. the ribozyme is RNA trypsin is not cleaved by HCl since it is not in stomach why should be the acid neutralized? Where does the bicarbonate come from?

Does DNA encode for tRNA?

... kind, e.g. tRNA, rRNA or pre-mRNA) Second there is translation, where is mature mRNA translated into protein with help of rRNA (the formation of ribozyme and the reaction) and tRNA (brings amino acids able to couple to form the peptide). But EVERY RNA molecule is transcripted from DNA!

rRNA has the catalytic role in peptide bond formation. The enzyme previously known as peptidyl transferase is actually a ribozyme, the 23S rRNA(bacteria)

... the eukaryotic nucleus(there are other introns that do not need SNRPs for splicing). The leading hypothesis is that the snRNA actually acts like a ribozyme, catalysing the chemical reactions(transesterification reactions), while the proteins simply stabilise the structure of the spliceosome and ...
