Mechanical forces used to unfold RNA molecules
Researchers unfold single RNA molecules using mechanical force By applying precise, mechanical forces to the ends of individual RNA molecules, HHMI researchers have successfully unfolded and refolded the molecules. According to the scientists, measurements of the forces needed to unfold and refold these molecules will yield new information about how RNA molecules achieve their stable three-dimensional structures.
