Abstract

The kink-turn (k-turn) is a common structural motif in RNA that introduces a tight kink into the helical axis. k-turns play an important architectural role in RNA structures and serve as binding sites for a number of proteins. We have created a database of known and postulated k-turn sequences and three-dimensional (3D) structures, available via the internet. This site provides (1) a database of sequence and structure, as a resource for the RNA community, and (2) a tool to enable the manipulation and comparison of 3D structures where known.
