A novel RNA motif was identified based on its sequence by computational structure modeling. The RNA molecule was reported to be a substrate for the structurally specific endoribonuclease, Dicer, which cleaves doublestranded RNA and cuts out 20−25 nucleotide fragments. This enzymatic property was essential for the potential utilization of the motif in the nanoparticle design of further biological experiments...
