Editing function of Escherichia coli cysteinyl-tRNA synthetase: cyclization of cysteine to cysteine thiolactone

Nucleic Acids Research

Apr 11, 1994

H Z Jakubowski

PMID: 8165127

Abstract

A cyclic sulfur compound, identified as cysteine thiolactone by several chemical and enzymatic tests, is formed from cysteine during in vitro tRNA(Cys) aminoacylation catalyzed by Escherichia coli cysteinyl-tRNA synthetase. The mechanism of cysteine thiolactone formation involves enzyma...read more

Non-coding Variants in Cancer (Keystone)

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. This feed focuses on the latest research on non-coding variants in cancer.

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.
