  3. ncbi request reprint Molecular determinants and guided evolution of species-specific RNA editing
    Robert A Reenan
    Department of Genetics and Developmental Biology, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, Connecticut 06030, USA
    Nature 434:409-13. 2005
    ..The results also provide models for the genesis of RNA editing sites through the stepwise addition of structural domains, or by short walks through sequence space from ancestral structures...

    M J Palladino
    Department of Genetics and Developmental Biology, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington 06030, USA
    RNA 6:1004-18. 2000
