The Effect of Secondary Structure on the Template Activity of Polyribonucleotides

One of the key discoveries in early code translation efforts is discussed in this article--that single-stranded RNA, but not double or triple stranded RNA, serves as a template for protein synthesis. This article discusses the possible functional significance of RNA's secondary structure in the coding mechanism.
