The discovery that RNAs possess catalytic capabilities (Kruger et al, 1982; Guerrier-Takada et al, 1983), and the growing realization of the importance of ribosomal RNAs in ribosome function (for review see Noller, 1984) have stimulated renewed interest in the structural and chemical properties of RNA. Of the ribosomal RNAs only one is simple enough and small enough to lend itself to detailed physical characterization in solution, 5S RNA.
