A synthetic RNP-binding module was developed to produce an alternative translational switch: an in vitro selection experiment targeting a derivative of L7Ae protein (L7KK) identified a new H23 RNA aptamer that binds tightly to both L7KK and L7Ae. The switch serves as a translational OFF switch for constructing a NOR gate.
