Dozens of intracellular proteins have a second function on the cell surface, referred to as “intracellular/surface moonlighting proteins”. An analysis of the results of 22 cell surface proteomics studies was performed to address whether the hundreds of intracellular proteins found on the cell surface could be candidates for being additional intracellular/surface moonlighting proteins.

Ru1 and Ru2 not only can stabilize the triplex, but also can serve as molecular “light switches” for the triplex. In addition, the two complexes stabilizing third-strand is weaker, reflecting the binding of Ru1 and Ru2 with the triplex is favored by the Watson–Crick base-paired duplex.
