    Principle sketch of the experiment. The charge-separated radical pair (CSS-RP, black curve) decays in about 1000 nanoseconds by recombination of the electrons to singlet or triplet product. The dynamic change of the CSS radical pair between singlet (S) and triplet (T) is only recorded on average over the total reaction time. Using the push-pull technique, the singlet and triplet character of the CSS radical pair can be read out at any time. (Image: Christoph Lambert / Universität Würzburg)

    The schematically shown ribozyme (green) binds to the target RNA (blue) by base pairing and installs the methyl group (red flag) at a defined site of a selected adenine. The reaction product m1A is shown in the red circle. (Image: Claudia Höbartner / Universität Würzburg)

    On the track of evolution: a catalytically active RNA molecule that specifically attaches methyl groups to other RNAs – a research group from the University of Würzburg reports on this new discovery in "Nature".
