We analyzed modes of action of ribonuclease P (RNase P) proteins, C5 in Escherichia coli and Rpr2 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, using a pair of complementary fluorescence-labeled oligoribonucleotides. Fluorescence resonance energy transfer-based assays revealed that RNA annealing and strand displacement activities found in archaeal RNase P proteins are prevalent in eubacterial (C5) and eukaryotic (Rpr2) RNase P proteins.
