Expanding biohybrid-mediated asymmetric catalysis into the realm of RNA

Author affiliations

Abstract

The recent development of biohybrid catalytic systems has allowed synthetic chemists to reach high levels of selectivity on a wide variety of valuable synthetic transformations. In this context, DNA-based catalysts have emerged as particularly appealing tools. Interestingly, while long RNA sequences (ribozymes) are known to catalyse specific biochemical reactions with remarkable efficiencies, RNA-based catalysts involving a catalytically active metal complex interacting in a non-covalent fashion with short sequences have never been evaluated to date. We report here our results, which have led to the first example involving a short RNA-based catalyst.
