DUF2800 RNA motif

The DUF2800 RNA motif is a conserved RNA structure that was discovered by bioinformatics. DUF2800 motif RNAs are found in Firmicutes. DUF2800 RNAs are also predicted in the phyla Actinobacteria and Synergistetes, although these RNAs are likely the result of recent horizontal gene transfer or conceivably sequence contamination.
