    The hairpin ribozyme is a prominent member of the group of small catalytic RNAs because it does not require metal ions to achieve catalysis. To gain insight into dynamics in the active site of a minimal self-cleaving hairpin ribozyme, we have performed extensive classical, explicit solvent molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on time scales of 50-150 ns. Starting from the available X-ray crystal structures, we investigated the structural impact of the protonation states of G8 and A38, and the inactivating A-1(2'-methosy) substitution employed in crystallography.
