It slices, it dices, and it protects the body from harm (Science)

ndings of Han and Donovan, and the two pieces of data ultimately revealed how RNase L cleaves its RNA targets.

Han, Donovan and Rath contributed equally to the paper and are listed as co-first authors.

Finally, senior research specialist Gena Whitney and graduate student Alisha Chitrakar conducted additional studies of RNase L in human cells, confirming the 3D structure.

Now that the human structure has been solved, researchers can explore ways to either enhance or dampen RNase L activity for medical and therapeutic uses, Korennykh said.

"This work illustrates the wonderful usefulness of doing both crystallography and careful kinetic and enzymatic studies at the same time," said Peter Walter, professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of California-San Francisco School of Medicine. "Crystallography gives a static picture which becomes vastly enhanced by studies of the kinetics."
