The Gut-1 RNA motif (also called gt-1) is a conserved RNA structure identified by bioinformatics.[1][2] These RNAs are present in environmental sequences, and as of 2010 are not known to be present in any species that has been grown under laboratory conditions. Gut-1 RNA is exclusively found in DNA from uncultivated bacteria present in samples from the human gut.
