Aminoacyl esterase activity of the Tetrahymena ribozyme

Science

Jun 5, 1992

J A PiccirilliT R Cech

Abstract

Several classes of ribozymes (catalytic RNA's) catalyze reactions at phosphorus centers, but apparently no reaction at a carbon center has been demonstrated. The active site of the Tetrahymena ribozyme was engineered to bind an oligonucleotide derived from the 3' end of N-formyl-methion...read more

tRNA synthetases

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, also known as tRNA-ligases, are enzymes that attaches the appropriate amino acid onto its transfer RNA. Mutations in these enzymes have been linked to several diseases including Charcot-Marie-Tooth and cancer. Here is the latest research.

Riboswitches and Ribozymes

Ribozymes are catalytic RNAs that interact with a variety of small molecule substrates and cofactors, the intracellular abundance of which are sensed by riboswitches that modulate transcription, RNA stability, or translation. Here is the latest research.

Ribozymes

Ribozymes are catalytic enzymes that are made entirely of ribonucleic acid. These enzymes cleave the complementary mRNA sequence and are being studied as potential therapies for some dominantly inherited diseases. Discover the latest research on ribozymes here.
