Abstract

Major progress in the study of RNase P has resulted from crystallography of bacterial catalytic subunits and the discovery of catalytic activity in eukaryotes. Several new substrates have also been identified, primarily in bacteria but also in yeast. Our current world should be called the RNA-protein world" rather than the protein world".
