Hairpin Ribozyme Transesterification?

Look familiar?

Research: meepers anonymous


From Wikipedia:
"A ribozyme (from ribonucleic acid enzyme, also called RNA enzyme or catalytic RNA) is an RNA molecule that catalyzes a chemical reaction. Many natural ribozymes catalyze either their own cleavage or the cleavage of other RNAs, but they have also been found to catalyze the aminotransferase activity of the ribosome. Investigators studying the origin of life have produced ribozymes in the laboratory that are capable of catalyzing their own synthesis under very specific conditions, such as an RNA polymerase ribozyme.[1] More work needs to be done in this area though, as the polymerase ribozyme does not have enough catalytic prowess: it is able to add up to 14 nucleotides to a primer template in 24 hours until it is decomposed by hydrolysis of the phosphodiester bonds."

From LGpeida (Skateboarding)
Bree: So, Jonas taught me how to skate, with minimal scrapes and bruises. It's pretty nice of him, I think. He's still out there. Skating. So Daniel, I saw your last video. I think it was a really good idea that you left your house. As for the box that you found at my parent's house, that symbol looks really familiar. I think it's the company my dad used to work for or something. I don't know a lot about what he did, because he was very secretive. He always encouraged me heavily in the sciences. I think that was why he was such a strict disciplinarian. He wanted me to be a big shot at NASA or something. I miss him. He did research for a bunch of companies. He specializes in ribozymes. I like that word. I made a joke about Newton's laws of motion today, when I fell off my skateboard. You would've laughed. Bye! (Bree waves.)


  1. Doesn't it kind of look like the Opaphid symbol or is that just wishful thinking. . .
