Cooperative binding of two short oligonucleotides to RNA targets. (A) Side-by-side binding of two oligonucleotides to adjacent target sequences. The complex is stabilized through stacking interactions at the interface between the oligonucleotides. (B) Side-by-side binding of two partially complementary oligonucleotides to adjacent target sequences. The complex is stabilized through base-pairing between the oligonucleotide dimerization segments. (C) Binding of two partially complementary oligonucleotides to nonadjacent target sequences that are brought together in space by a secondary structure in the target.
