Viroids proper can be distinguished from hammerhead viroids and satellite RNAs through their dinucleotide composition


Viroids proper can be distinguished from hammerhead viroids and satellite RNAs through their dinucleotide composition

G + C-rich viroids proper exhibit a unique dinucleotide composition in that AU and UA are much less frequent than expected. Thus, evaluation of the dinucleotide pattern allows a quick discrimination between viroids proper and similar RNAs from plants, such as hammerhead-containing viroids, satellite RNAs, and defective interfering RNAs. In addition to sequence alignment, this method might be useful for the classification of a newly found small RNA replicon.
