English term or phrase: hairpin
Definition from Biochemical Society:
Chain reversal between two adjacent beta strands.

Example sentence(s):
  • The model of two hairpin docking sites per TolC protomer corresponding with hexameric adaptor proteins was confirmed by disulfide cross-linking experiments. American Chemical Society
  • As in all metazoans, the replication-dependent histone genes of Caenorhabditis elegans lack introns and contain a short hairpin structure in the 3' untranslated region. This hairpin structure is a key element for post-transcriptional regulation of histone gene expression and determines mRNA 3' end formation, nuclear export, translation and mRNA decay. Journal of Cell Science
  • Here active intramolecular ribozymes produce a slight reduction in β-galactosidase, whereas long RNA hairpin loops produce an even stronger reduction than before. IngentaConnect

Definisi dari Biokimia

Perubahan rentetan nukleotida diantara dua helaian beta yang berdekatan

Example sentence(s):
  • Apa peranan protein rho dalam proses transkripsi? Selain karena adanya struktur tusuk konde, terminasi transkripsi dapat juga terjadi dengan bantuan suatu protein khusus yang dinamakan protein rho. Rho merupakan protein heksamer yang akan menghidrolisis ATP dengan adanya RNA untai tunggal. Protein ini nampak terikat pada urutan sepanjang 72 basa pada RNA yang diduga lebih disebabkan oleh pengenalan suatu struktur spesifik daripada karena adanya urutan konsensus. Rho bergerak di sepanjang RNA nasen menuju kompleks transkripsi. Pada kompleks transkripsi ini rho memungkinkan RNA polimerase untuk berhenti pada sinyal terminator tertentu. Sinyal- sinyal terminator ini, seperti halnya sinyal terminator yang tidak bergantung kepada rho, lebih dikenali oleh RNA daripada oleh DNA cetakannya. Adakalanya teminator tersebut juga berupa struktur tusuk konde tetapi tidak diikuti oleh urutan poli U. - Hasil Diskusi Genetika Ekspresi Gen I\
