A minimum of two consecutive Watson—Crick base pairs is needed to define a helical region. Bases at the junctions Terminal T and D loops involve many tertiary and trans interactions. V 12 is directed from the geometric center of base 1 to the center of base 2. Traditional FISH techniques using large oligonucleotide sequences labeled with one to five fluorophores are generally limited by high background and low sensitivity due to non-specific binding and insufficient signal amplification. The 12 families of edge to edge base pairs formed by nucleic acid bases as defined by the relative orientations of the glycosidic bonds of the interaction bases column 2 and the edges used in the interaction column 3. Nucleotides, dinucleotides and standard double-stranded helices were excluded.

Therefore, the RNAview program gives one longer pseudo-helix on the y rnaveiw. The second group includes the protein—RNA complexes. A survey has been carried out for 41 unique structures selected from the NDB database.

RNAView – SBGrid Consortium – Supported Software

The criteria for determining the type of base pair family are the following: V 1C and V 2C are vectors coinciding with the glycosidic bonds of bases 1 and 2. High-throughput, single-cell quantitation and imaging of four RNA targets.


All the loops are represented by circles. RNAMLview will generate distinct graphical representations for each model and each representation rnavie be displayed in a separate panel of the application and can be manipulated independently. A survey has been carried out for 41 unique structures selected from the NDB database.


This methodology results in greater specificity, lower background, and higher signal-to-noise ratios. If the base pair does not belong to the canonical Watson—Crick base pair as defined above, it is examined to see whether it belongs to one of the other 12 non-Watson—Crick base pair families. Cell, — Nucleotides, dinucleotides and standard double-stranded helices were excluded. USA97— Otherwise, it is in the cis configuration. For a standard base pair, the origins of the two coordinate systems, one for the pyrimidine and one for the purine, overlap.

The advantage of this program is that all the base pair interaction patterns are dynamically linked, while moving individual elements. The cis is formed, if the glycosidic bonds of the nucleotides are on the same side of the line. The secondary base pairs are the cis Watson—Crick pairs together with the wobble pairs and those are normally represented in standard 2D diagrams.

We selected 41 unique, well-refined X-ray crystal structures with resolutions of at least 3. Right Cis versus trans orientation of glycosidic bonds. The statistics for the occurrence of each edge and of each of the 12 bp families are given for the combinations of the four bases: Note that the orientation of C matches A. Nature, — The first group contains the structures of rnavjew single-stranded RNAs.


The red single dashed lines mean that the base pair involve only one H-bond. The secondary structure B was obtained directly from the RNAview program without further modification. Examples of the combination of the letters HSc means that the base on the right is Hoogsteen edge and on the left is Sugar edge and the two rnavuew bond orientation are cis.

Supported Applications

Structure8— To define the relative orientation of the two bases, a line is drawn parallel to and between the two connecting H-bonds. Structure6— We have developed a program called RNAview that provides a detailed annotation for the secondary and tertiary structures of a nucleic acid with the diagram convention for the 12 families of pairs.

BPViewer provides a web interface for displaying three-dimensional 3D coordinates of individual base pairs or base pair collections. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.


Another output of the program is the VRML format. A standard reference frame is used for base pair determination In order to identify and classify automatically RNA base pairs, three programs have been developed.
