Understanding the catalytic mechanisms of RNA enzymes remains an important and intriguing challenge - one that has grown in importance since the recent demonstration that the ribosome is a ribozyme. At first, it seemed that all RNA enzymes compensate for the limited chemical versatility of ribonucleotide functional groups by recruiting obligatory metal ion cofactors to carry out catalytic chemistry...
