Template switching in DNA replication can create and maintain RNA hairpins.

The evolutionary origin of RNA stem structures and the preservation of their base-pairing under a spontaneous and random mutation process have puzzled theoretical evolutionary biologists. DNA replication-related template switching is a mutation mechanism that creates reverse-complement copies of sequence regions within a genome by replicating briefly along either the complementary or nascent DNA strand. Depending […]
