Transcription and RNA Processing

ID #2243

In which molecules (RNA molecules specifically) do inter and intramolecular base pairings occur? Also what are the differences between inter and Intramolecular pairings?


Intermolecular base pairing happens within the same nucleotide chain and happens in almost every RNA molecule. Intramolecular base pairing will happen between two different nucleotide chains. This happens in the spliceosome, ribosome and telomerase and pretty much any other complex involving RNA.
