Figure 6

Proposed “on-site” standby sites for 30S binding at the replicase starts of the single-stranded RNA bacteriophages, as exposed upon translation of the coat-protein gene. (A) Structure conferring translational coupling in MS2. MJ = Min Jou interaction;71 VD = van Duin interaction.74 Conservation of an asymmetric loop in the rightward hairpin is shown on the right (NL95 lacks the bottom half of this hairpin). (B) Quasi-continuous single-stranded regions for representatives from all four species of ss-RNA bacteriophage. Replicase start codons are indicated. Based on refs. 6063.
