The procedure for isolating aminoacyl-tRNA-synthetases from yeast Candida utilis IBPM-405 was developed. The rate of activation of L-amino acids in the formation of hydroxamates was different. Aspartic acid, asparagine, glutamic acid, tryptophane, phenyl alanine and methionine underwent the highest activation. The activation of alanine, arginine, hydroxyproline, serine and isoleucine was insignificant. Using aspartic acid, it was shown that the hydroxamate formation was ATP-stimulated and that the amount of hydroxamate increased with a rise of the protein concentration in the mixture to 9-10 mg/ml. The hydroxamate formation was inhibited by p-chloromercury-benzoate and heavy metal ions. Yeast aminoacyl-tRNA-synthetases showed L-aspartic and L-glutamic activities that were independent from Mg++ ions and ATP.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
