    CIBIO, University of Trento, via Sommarive 9, 38123 Povo, Italy
    ACS Synth Biol 4:1144-50. 2015
    ..The enriched sequences also showed riboswitch activity. Our results demonstrated that small-molecule-responsive nucleic acid sensors can be selected to control the activity of target nucleic acid circuitry. ..

    Laura Martini
    CIBIO, University of Trento, Mattarello, Italy
    Methods Mol Biol 1111:153-64. 2014
    ..Only standard laboratory equipment and commercially available material are exploited for the described assays, including DNA, purified transcription-translation machinery, i.e., the PURE system, and a spectrofluorometer. ..
