Possible Interaction: Magnesium and Spermine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In keeping with the known role of polyamines as counterions in RNA folding, we have found that concentrations of spermine as low as 1 microM facilitate first-order Cis cleavage and decrease the concentration of magnesium required for optimal cleavage of the VS ribozyme.

High rates of correct aminoacylation are achieved in the presence of physiological concentrations of magnesium (1.0 mM) plus spermine (0.2 mM).

The polyamine spermine stabilizes some, but not all, of the structural features stabilized by magnesium at 44 degrees C, and the combination of magnesium and spermine , at low levels, is more effective than either cation alone in stabilizing tRNA structure.
