Retooling RNA: RNA aptamers are high-affinity ligands that can be assembled with other structures to yield multivalent molecules. These properties have been addressed in two recent studies: One describes a GFP-like RNA reporter used to study the dynamics of endogenous RNA; the other study reports on an aptamer-templated assembly of multi-enzyme complexes in bacteria for the controlled production of secondary molecules (see picture).
