Here we present a new database for proteins with RNA chaperone activity, which intends to compile all the information available on these proteins with the perspective to promote the understanding of these activities. These proteins belong to very diverse families of proteins with unrelated structures and unrelated biological activities. What they all have in common is that they interact with many different RNA molecules promoting their activity, mostly folding or assembly.
!!! Please note that this website will be updated in the near future according to the newly published review "RNA chaperones, RNA annealers and RNA helicases", L. Rajkowitsch et al., RNA Biology 4:3, p.118-130, 2007. !!!
