Abstract

摘要

Three-dimensional (3D) structures and their stability are essential for the biological functions of RNAs, and due to the polyanionic nature, salt condition is critical for RNA   3D structure and stability. However, there is still lack of a unified 3D structure prediction model for predicting 3D structure and stability of RNAs in salt solutions. In the work, we have proposed a coarse-grained model for predicting 3D structure and stability of RNAs, including RNA hairpins, duplexes and RNA pseudoknots, and the model can account for the effect of monovalent and divalent ions on their structures and stability. The predicted 3D structures, and melting temperatures for RNA hairpins, duplexes and pseudoknots in various monovalent/ divalent ion solutions are in excellent agreement with the extensive experimental measurements.
