Abstract
Riboswitches are regulatory elements commonly found in the 5′ leader sequences of bacterial mRNAs that bind cellular metabolites to direct expression at either the transcriptional or translational level. The effectors of these RNAs are chemically diverse, including nucleobases and nucleosides, amino acids, cofactors, and second messenger molecules. Over the last few years, a number of structures have revealed the architectural means by which RNA creates binding pockets of high affinity and specificity for these compounds. For most effectors, there is a single class of associated riboswitches. However, eight individual classes of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) and/or...
