The sequence-nonspecific recognition of single-stranded nucleic acid. (a) Oligo(dT) bound in the exonuclease active site of DNA polymerase I Klenow fragment (Freemont et al., 1988[link]). (b) A short capped RNA transcript bound to the VP39 RNA methyltransferase (Hodel et al., 1998[link]). Both proteins primarily interact with the backbone of the nucleic acid.
