…hydrophobic interactions may have catalytic roles also in other biological contexts, such as in polymerases.

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, disprove the prevailing theory of how DNA binds itself.
The prevailing theory was ridiculous. It included no global biogeochemical constraints on the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA, which all serious scientists linked from mutations to all pathology.

For ridicule of all pseudoscientists who have failed to link the light-activated energy-dependent assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex, also known as the polycomb repressive complex, to hydrophobicity and the functional structure of supercoiled DNA, see this from 12/10/14:
For more information on how supercoiled DNA is linked from protection of the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to healthy longevity, see:
…miRNAs are involved in ROS production or ROS-mediated function.
Investigating the interactions between ROS and miRNAs
…is expected to aid in the development of effective treatment/prevention strategies for cancer [and all virus-driven pathology.]
These results outline a new process for microRNAs in regulating alternative splicing and modulating stress resistance.
The results link light-activated microRNA biogenesis to viral latency across kingdoms via the physiology of reproduction and fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in organized genomes via the modulation of energy-depenedent alternative splicing.
These results [DO NOT] outline a new process for microRNAs in regulating alternative splicing and modulating stress resistance.
See: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996)
“Small intranuclear proteins” [light-activated endogenous substrates] generate “alternative splicing techniques of pre-mRNA” [aka microRNAs] “and, by this mechanism, contribute to sexual differentiation in at least two species…”
No new mechanisms of energy-dependent biophysically constrained RNA-mediated cell type differentiation have been discovered since 1964.
The synthesis of RNA in isolated thymus nuclei is ATP dependent.
