Specific protein recognition of an mRNA cap through its alkylated base.

Abstract

The specific binding of N7-methylguanine cap analogues to the RNA methyltransferase VP39 was observed through X-ray crystallography, providing a prototypical structure for a complex between a protein and an mRNA 5' cap.
