Single atom modification (O-->S) of tRNA confers ribosome binding. (1/763)

Escherichia coli tRNALysSUU, as well as human tRNALys3SUU, has 2-thiouridine derivatives at wobble position 34 (s2U*34). Unlike the native tRNALysSUU, the full-length, unmodified transcript of human tRNALys3UUU and the unmodified tRNALys3UUU anticodon stem/loop (ASLLys3UUU) did not bind AAA- or AAG-programmed ribosomes. In contrast, the completely unmodified yeast tRNAPhe anticodon stem/loop (ASLPheGAA) had an affinity (Kd = 136+/-49 nM) similar to that of native yeast tRNAPheGmAA (Kd = 103+/-19 nM). We have found that the single, site-specific substitution of s2U34 for U34 to produce the modified ASLLysSUU was sufficient to restore ribosomal binding. The modified ASLLysSUU bound the ribosome with an affinity (Kd = 176+/-62 nM) comparable to that of native tRNALysSUU (Kd = 70+/-7 nM). Furthermore, in binding to the ribosome, the modified ASLLys3SUU produced the same 16S P-site tRNA footprint as did native E. coli tRNALysSUU, yeast tRNAPheGmAA, and the unmodified ASLPheGAA. The unmodified ASLLys3UUU had no footprint at all. Investigations of thermal stability and structure monitored by UV spectroscopy and NMR showed that the dynamic conformation of the loop of modified ASLLys3SUU was different from that of the unmodified ASLLysUUU, whereas the stems were isomorphous. Based on these and other data, we conclude that s2U34 in tRNALysSUU and in other s2U34-containing tRNAs is critical for generating an anticodon conformation that leads to effective codon interaction in all organisms. This is the first example of a single atom substitution (U34-->s2U34) that confers the property of ribosomal binding on an otherwise inactive tRNA.  (+info)

The presence of pseudouridine in the anticodon alters the genetic code: a possible mechanism for assignment of the AAA lysine codon as asparagine in echinoderm mitochondria. (2/763)

It has been inferred from DNA sequence analyses that in echinoderm mitochondria not only the usual asparagine codons AAU and AAC, but also the usual lysine codon AAA, are translated as asparagine by a single mitochondrial (mt) tRNAAsn with the anticodon GUU. Nucleotide sequencing of starfish mt tRNAAsn revealed that the anticodon is GPsiU, U35 at the anticodon second position being modified to pseudouridine (Psi). In contrast, mt tRNALys, corresponding to another lysine codon, AAG, has the anticodon CUU. mt tRNAs possessing anti-codons closely related to that of tRNAAsn, but responsible for decoding only two codons each-tRNAHis, tRNAAsp and tRNATyr-were found to possess unmodified U35 in all cases, suggesting the importance of Psi35 for decoding the three codons. Therefore, the decoding capabilities of two synthetic Escherichia coli tRNAAla variants with the anticodon GPsiU or GUU were examined using an E.coli in vitro translation system. Both tRNAs could translate not only AAC and AAU with similar efficiency, but also AAA with an efficiency that was approximately 2-fold higher in the case of tRNAAlaGPsiU than tRNAAlaGUU. These findings imply that Psi35 of echinoderm mt tRNAAsn actually serves to decode the unusual asparagine codon AAA, resulting in the alteration of the genetic code in echinoderm mitochondria.  (+info)

A cytotoxic ribonuclease targeting specific transfer RNA anticodons. (3/763)

The carboxyl-terminal domain of colicin E5 was shown to inhibit protein synthesis of Escherichia coli. Its target, as revealed through in vivo and in vitro experiments, was not ribosomes as in the case of E3, but the transfer RNAs (tRNAs) for Tyr, His, Asn, and Asp, which contain a modified base, queuine, at the wobble position of each anticodon. The E5 carboxyl-terminal domain hydrolyzed these tRNAs just on the 3' side of this nucleotide. Tight correlation was observed between the toxicity of E5 and the cleavage of intracellular tRNAs of this group, implying that these tRNAs are the primary targets of colicin E5.  (+info)

Secondary structure of the C-terminal domain of the tyrosyl-transfer RNA synthetase from Bacillus stearothermophilus: a novel type of anticodon binding domain? (4/763)

The tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase catalyzes the activation of tyrosine and its coupling to the cognate tRNA. The enzyme is made of two domains: an N-terminal catalytic domain and a C-terminal domain that is necessary for tRNA binding and for which it was not possible to determine the structure by X-ray crystallography. We determined the secondary structure of the C-terminal domain of the tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase from Bacillus stearothermophilus by nuclear magnetic resonance methods and found that it is of the alpha+beta type. Its arrangement differs from those of the other anticodon binding domains whose structure is known. We also found that the isolated C-terminal domain behaves as a folded globular protein, and we suggest the presence of a flexible linker between the two domains.  (+info)

Differential import of nuclear-encoded tRNAGly isoacceptors into solanum Tuberosum mitochondria. (5/763)

In potato ( Solanum tuberosum ) mitochondria, about two-thirds of the tRNAs are encoded by the mitochondrial genome and one-third is imported from the cytosol. In the case of tRNAGly isoacceptors, a mitochondrial-encoded tRNAGly(GCC) was found in potato mitochondria, but this is likely to be insufficient to decode the four GGN glycine codons. In this work, we identified a cytosolic tRNAGly(UCC), which was found to be present in S.tuberosum mitochondria. The cytosolic tRNAGly(CCC) was also present in mitochondria, but to a lesser extent. By contrast, the cytosolic tRNAGly(GCC) could not be detected in mitochondria. This selective import of tRNAGly isoacceptors into S. tuberosum mitochondria raises further questions about the mechanism under-lying the specificity of the import process.  (+info)

The peculiar architectural framework of tRNASec is fully recognized by yeast AspRS. (6/763)

The wild-type transcript of Escherichia coli tRNASec, characterized by a peculiar core architecture and a large variable region, was shown to be aspartylatable by yeast AspRS. Similar activities were found for tRNASec mutants with methionine, leucine, and tryptophan anticodons. The charging efficiency of these molecules was found comparable to that of a minihelix derived from tRNAAsp and is accounted for by the presence of the discriminator residue G73, which is a major aspartate identity determinant. Introducing the aspartate identity elements from the anticodon loop (G34, U35, C36, C38) into tRNASec transforms this molecule into an aspartate acceptor with kinetic properties identical to tRNAAsp. Expression of the aspartate identity set in tRNASec is independent of the size of its variable region. The functional study was completed by footprinting experiments with four different nucleases as structural probes. Protection patterns by AspRS of transplanted tRNASec and tRNAAsp were found similar. They are modified, particularly in the anticodon loop, upon changing the aspartate anticodon into that of methionine. Altogether, it appears that recognition of a tRNA by AspRS is more governed by the presence of the aspartate identity set than by the structural framework that carries this set.  (+info)

The uridine in "U-turn": contributions to tRNA-ribosomal binding. (7/763)

"U-turns" represent an important class of structural motifs in the RNA world, wherein a uridine is involved in an abrupt change in the direction of the polynucleotide backbone. In the crystal structure of yeast tRNAPhe, the invariant uridine at position 33 (U33), adjacent to the anticodon, stabilizes the exemplar U-turn with three non-Watson-Crick interactions: hydrogen bonding of the 2'-OH to N7 of A35 and the N3-H to A36-phosphate, and stacking between C32 and A35-phosphate. The functional importance of each noncanonical interaction was determined by assaying the ribosomal binding affinities of tRNAPhe anticodon stem and loop domains (ASLs) with substitutions at U33. An unsubstituted ASL bound 30S ribosomal subunits with an affinity (Kd = 140+/-50 nM) comparable to that of native yeast tRNAPhe (Kd = 100+/-20 nM). However, the binding affinities of ASLs with dU-33 (no 2'-OH) and C-33 (no N3-H) were significantly reduced (2,930+/-140 nM and 2,190+/-300 nM, respectively). Surprisingly, the ASL with N3-methyluridine-33 (no N3-H) bound ribosomes with a high affinity (Kd = 220+/-20 nM). In contrast, ASLs constructed with position 33 uridine analogs in nonstacking, nonnative, and constrained conformations, dihydrouridine (C2'-endo), 6-methyluridine (syn) and 2'O-methyluridine (C3'-endo) had almost undetectable binding. The inability of ASLs with 6-methyluridine-33 and 2'O-methyluridine-33 to bind ribosomes was not attributable to any thermal instability of the RNAs. These results demonstrate that proton donations by the N3-H and 2'OH groups of U33 are not absolutely required for ribosomal binding. Rather, the results suggest that the overall uridine conformation, including a dynamic (C3'-endo > C2'-endo) sugar pucker, anti conformation, and ability of uracil to stack between C32 and A35-phosphate, are the contributing factors to a functional U-turn.  (+info)

A single uridine modification at the wobble position of an artificial tRNA enhances wobbling in an Escherichia coli cell-free translation system. (8/763)

5-Methoxyuridine was introduced into the first position of the anticodon of the unmodified form of tRNA(1Ser) from Escherichia coli. The codon reading efficiencies of this tRNA (tRNA(5-methoxyuridine UGA)) relative to those of the unmodified counterpart (tRNA(UGA)) were measured in a cell-free translation system. tRNA(5-methoxyuridine UGA) was more efficient than tRNA(UGA) in the reading of the UCU and UCG codons and was less efficient in the reading of the UCA codon. Thus, the single modification of U to 5-methoxyuridine can enhance the wobble readings.  (+info)

T box mechanism is a riboswitch commonly used by Gram-positive bacteria to regulate expression of amino-acid related genes such as aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRS). The T box riboswitch regulates the gene by the mechanism of transcription attenuation. The 5-UTR of the mRNA forms mutually exclusive anti-terminator or terminator structures depending on whether the tRNA bound is uncharged or charged. This study focuses on the interactions that occur between T box specifier domain (SD) and tRNA anticodon stem-loop (ASL). This intermolecular interaction contributes to the specificity of the T box riboswitch. In bacteria, glycyl-tRNA molecules with anticodon sequences GCC and UCC exhibit multiple extratranslational functions, including transcriptional regulation and cell wall biosynthesis. In this study, the high-resolution structures of three glycyl-tRNA anticodon arms with anticodon sequences GCC and UCC have been determined. Two of the tRNA molecules are proteinogenic and one is non-proteinogenic ...
The codon usage in the mitochondrial genome of R. compacta shows a strong preference of synonymous codons ending with Thymine or Guanine (Figure 1 and Table 2), which is in contrast to most vertebrate mtDNAs [17]. Moreover, the nucleotide composition of the tRNA genes is adapted to the increased GT-content (Table 1), but most anticodons of the tRNA genes still show the typical sequence of other metazoan genomes [19, 20] having anticodons GNN for NNY codons, UNN for NNR codons and also UNN for four-fold degenerate codon families (Table 2). Therefore, the reverse complements of the anticodon sequences show usually the low frequent codons (Table 2) rejecting an adaptation of the anticodon sequences to most frequent codons (see [17]). In contrast, this strongly supports that an effective translation system is based on anticodon sequences of tRNA genes with highest versatility to all recognized codons independent of their frequency [15, 16, 18].. Three deviations from the anticodon system with such ...
In all organisms, precursor tRNAs are processed into mature functional units by post-transcriptional changes. These involve 5 and 3 end trimming as well as the addition of a significant number of chemical modifications, including RNA editing. The only known example of non-organellar C to U editing of tRNAs occurs in trypanosomatids. In this system, editing at position 32 of the anticodon loop of tRNA(Thr)(AGU) stimulates, but is not required for, the subsequent formation of inosine at position 34. In the present work, we expand the number of C to U edited tRNAs to include all the threonyl tRNA isoacceptors. Notably, the absence of a naturally encoded adenosine, at position 34, in two of these isoacceptors demonstrates that A to I is not required for C to U editing. We also show that C to U editing is a nuclear event while A to I is cytoplasmic, where C to U editing at position 32 occurs in the precursor tRNA prior to 5 leader removal. Our data supports the view that C to U editing is more widespread

The preceding discussion suggests that each of the tRNA2Gly mutants reduces the structural rigidity of the tRNA. The immediate effects of this increased flexibility may be different for mutants in the elbow region versus mutants in the anticodon stem, but ultimately the loss of stability results in diminished codon-anticodon pairing in both the A‐ and P‐sites of the ribosome. The coincident loss of tRNA structure and decoding ability suggests the mutations may interfere with a dynamic interaction between the tRNA and ribosome which stabilizes cognate pairing.. The contribution that ribosomes make to codon-anticodon stability is substantial. Estimates indicate that cognate interactions in the A‐site of the ribosome are stabilized between 10‐ and 100‐fold (at 20-25°C) over both non‐cognate interactions in the A‐site and cognate interactions in solution (Grosjean et al., 1976; Karim and Thompson, 1986; Pape et al., 1998). Chemical protection studies with A‐site tRNA or anticodon ...

tRNA: tRNA is known as transfer RNA. It is composed of a string of nucleotides in the shape of a clover. Its shape is secured by hydrogen bonds. It possesses an anticodon on the leaf side where mRNA can bind using hydrogen bonds and a 3 prime end where amino acids can bind by a unstable covalent bond. The third nucleic acid on the anticodon is angled inwards resulting in the third base wobble ...

Most archaea and bacteria use a modified C in the anticodon wobble position of isoleucine tRNA to base pair with A but not with G of the mRNA. This allows the tRNA to read the isoleucine codon AUA without also reading the methionine codon AUG. To understand why a modified C, and not U or modified U, is used to base pair with A, we mutated the C34 in the anticodon of Haloarcula marismortui isoleucine tRNA (tRNA2Ile) to U, expressed the mutant tRNA in Haloferax volcanii, and purified and analyzed the tRNA. Ribosome binding experiments show that although the wild-type tRNA2Ile binds exclusively to the isoleucine codon AUA, the mutant tRNA binds not only to AUA but also to AUU, another isoleucine codon, and to AUG, a methionine codon. The G34 to U mutant in the anticodon of another H. marismortui isoleucine tRNA species showed similar codon binding properties. Binding of the mutant tRNA to AUG could lead to misreading of the AUG codon and insertion of isoleucine in place of methionine. This result ...
T4 RNA ligase can also be used to synthesize the fifteen nucleotide long anticodon arm region of yeast tRNA(phe) complete with modified nucleotides and a four base pair helical stem. This anticodon arm was examined with respect to binding the 30S subunit and 70S ribosome of E. coli compared to whole yeast tRNA(phe). Equilibrium binding constants were derived under various binding conditions using two different assay methods. The effect of varying the mRNA length and sequence and varying the nucleotide sequence of the synthetic anticodon arm upon the binding constant was examined. It has been shown that an intact base paired stem is necessary for the binding of the anticodon arm to the 30S subunit ...
For each amino acid, the codons are shown to the left (written 5 to 3) and the cognate anticodons are shown on the right. Note that the first two bases of the codon and anticodon interact by standard Watson-Crick base pairing rules, but the third base of the anticodon can pair by the wobble rules. Based upon these rules a minimum of 32 tRNAs are needed to recognize all of the sense codons in mRNA. The amino acids are attached to the cognate tRNA via a specific aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase or via a tRNA-dependent amino acid modification [Woese et al., 2000]. tRNA genes. There are 86 tRNA genes on the E. coli chromosome [Blattner et al., 1997]. Thus, many tRNA genes are redundant. The tRNA genes that are redundant correlate well with the tRNAs that are most abundant in the cell (tRNAs which recognize the most frequently used codons) and the single copy tRNAs encode less abundant tRNAs (i.e. tRNAs which recognize codons that are rarely used). ...
Although the basic mechanisms of protein synthesis are established and structures of many of the components have been determined, many details remain unknown at the molecular level, particularly the mechanistic details regarding function and regulation of the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (AARSs). In addition to being key players in translation, the AARSs are good models for understanding allosteric interactions, in which a binding event triggers enzymatic catalysis at a distant site. Many AARSs bind to the anticodon portion of their matching (cognate) tRNA molecules, and the anticodon-binding site is often tens of Ångstroms removed from the enzyme active site, where amino acid attachment occurs. Efficient anticodon-mediated aminoacylation therefore depends on communication between protein domains. Our lab is investigating the long-range communication in E. coli methionyl-tRNA synthetase (MetRS), an AARS that requires anticodon binding for efficient catalysis yet also aminoacylates a small tRNA ...
Transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules play a crucial role in protein biosynthesis in all organisms. Their interactions with ribosomes mediate the translation of genetic messages into polypeptides. Three tRNAs bound to the Escherichia coli 70S ribosome were visualized directly with cryoelectron microscopy and three-dimensional reconstruction. The detailed arrangement of A- and P-site tRNAs inferred from this study allows localization of the sites for anticodon interaction and peptide bond formation on the ribosome. ...
In the present study, the authors report that a cluster of metabolic defects are caused by mutation in a mitochondrial tRNA (Wilson et al., 2004). They identified a homoplasmic mutation substituting cytidine for uridine immediate 5 to mitochondrial rRNA isolucine anticodon. They note that uridine is almost invariate of a large number of species because of its role in stabilizing the anticodon loop. The authors found that hypertension and dyslipidemia occur in patients who have inherited this mutation. This was described in a large kindred which had a syndrome consisting of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and hypomagnesemia. The phenotype appeared to be inherited along the maternal lineage. These findings are of great interest. The findings would have been stronger if the authors had actually cultured fibroblasts or made cybrids to demonstrate that this mutation does indeed cause mitochondrial dysfunction. Nevertheless, the findings are of potential great importance because of the "metabolic ...
Translation the process whereby the genetic code carried by mRNA is read and used to construct proteins. This process is carried out by ribosomes. The ribosomes recruit appropriate 4S or transfer RNAs (tRNAs) which are conceptually) molecules with an amino acid at one end and an "anticodon" at the other. The anticodon consists of three nucleotide bases which are the complement of the codon which codes for the tRNAs amino acid. Thus, for example, proline is coded by the sequence CCA. The corresponding tRNApro would then bear a proline amino acid at one end, and the complementary sequence, i.e. GGU, at the other. The ribosome sits on the mRNA molecule. If the ribosome detects that the tRNA bases form complementary base pairs with the next mRNA triplet in line, it clips the amino acid off the tRNA and ads it to the growing protein. It then moves up three bases on the mRNA and looks for the next matching tRNA. ...
The structure of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) in the ribosome was probed with hydroxyl radicals generated locally from iron(II) tethered to the 5′ ends of anticodon stem-loop analogs (ASLs) of transfer RNA. The ASLs, ranging in length from 4 to 33 base pairs, bound to the ribosome in a messenger RNA-dependent manner and directed cleavage to specific regions of the 16S, 23S, and 5S rRNA chains. The positions and intensities of cleavage depended on whether the ASLs were bound to the ribosomal A or P site, and on the lengths of their stems. These data predict the three-dimensional locations of the rRNA targets relative to the positions of A- and P- site transfer RNAs inside the ribosome. ...
EF-Tu, shown here from PDB entry 1ttt, performs the important job of shepherding each transfer RNA to the ribosome, powered by a molecule of GTP. EF-Tu is the most plentiful protein in bacterial cells-typically there will be enough that every tRNA may be matched with one. It binds to a tRNA after the proper amino acid has been attached to it. Then, the complex docks into the active site of the ribosome. When the tRNA anticodon matches up correctly the mRNA codon, a signal from the ribosome causes EF-Tu to change shape and the molecule of GTP is cleaved. This causes EF-Tu to let go of the tRNA and leave, allowing the tRNA to enter into the reaction ...

A dispensing device has a storage compartment for holding one or more of the medication containers. The compartment has an opening. A push member moves in a path aligned with the opening between a first position, spaced from the opening, and a second position, adjacent the opening. A first mechanism moves one container held within the compartment into the path as the push member is moved from its second position toward its first position. The push member, when subsequently moved from its first position toward its second position, ejects the one container in the path from the compartment through the opening. The first mechanism also serves to move another container held within the compartment into the path after the one container is ejected and the push member is moved from its second position back toward its first position.

Queuine tRNA-ribosyltransferase; Catalyzes the base-exchange of a guanine (G) residue with the queuine precursor 7-aminomethyl-7-deazaguanine (PreQ1) at position 34 (anticodon wobble position) in tRNAs with GU(N) anticodons (tRNA-Asp, -Asn, -His and -Tyr). Catalysis occurs through a double-displacement mechanism. The nucleophile active site attacks the C1 of nucleotide 34 to detach the guanine base from the RNA, forming a covalent enzyme-RNA intermediate. The proton acceptor active site deprotonates the incoming PreQ1, allowing a nucleophilic attack on the C1 of the ribose to form th [...] (375 aa ...
We report the characterization of tadA, the first prokaryotic RNA editing enzyme to be identified. Escherichia coli tadA displays sequence similarity to the yeast tRNA deaminase subunit Tad2p. Recombinant tadA protein forms homodimers and is sufficient for site-specific inosine formation at the wobble position (position 34) of tRNA(Arg2), the only tRNA having this modification in prokaryotes. With the exception of yeast tRNA(Arg), no other eukaryotic tRNA substrates were found to be modified by tadA. How ever, an artificial yeast tRNA(Asp), which carries the anticodon loop of yeast tRNA(Arg), is bound and modified by tadA. Moreover, a tRNA(Arg2) minisubstrate containing the anticodon stem and loop is sufficient for specific deamination by tadA. We show that nucleotides at positions 33-36 are sufficient for inosine formation in mutant Arg2 minisubstrates. The anticodon is thus a major determinant for tadA substrate specificity. Finally, we show that tadA is an essential gene in E.coli, ...
Wybutosine (yW) is a tricyclic nucleoside with a large side chain found at the 3-position adjacent to the anticodon of eukaryotic phenylalanine tRNA. yW supports codon recognition by stabilizing codon-anticodon interactions during decoding on the ribosome. To identify genes responsible for yW synthesis from uncharacterized genes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we employed a systematic reverse genetic approach combined with mass spectrometry (ribonucleome analysis). Four genes YPL207w, YML005w, YGL050w and YOL141w (named TYW1, TYW2, TYW3 and TYW4, respectively) were essential for yW synthesis. Mass spectrometric analysis of each modification intermediate of yW revealed its sequential biosynthetic pathway. TYW1 is an iron-sulfur (Fe-S) cluster protein responsible for the tricyclic formation. Multistep enzymatic formation of yW from yW-187 could be reconstituted in vitro using recombinant TYW2, TYW3 and TYW4 with S-adenosylmethionine, suggesting that yW synthesis might proceed through sequential ...
There are only 20 amino acids that are coded for by approximately 50 different tRNA and there are 61 codons that specify an amino acid. As it turns out, some tRNAs can bind at more than one codon. Crick called this ability "wobble." If inosine is in the first position in the anticodon of the tRNA, it can bind to uracil, adenosine, or cytosine in the third position of the codon. Thus this one tRNA recognizes three different codons (figures 15.12 and 15.13). Remember that the codon and anti-codon are anti-parellel. The first position of the codon is at the 5 end of the codon and binds to the third position (3end) of the anti-codon ...

In yeast meiosis, ascosporal colonies are sometimes sectored for a marker--i.e., half the colony has one allele and half has the other. This is interpreted as replicative resolution of heteroduplex DNA (hDNA) formed as a recombination intermediate. We have looked for similar evidence of hDNA formation during mitotic recombination between two repeated sequences on the same chromosome. The two repeats, an ochre suppressor and a wild-type tRNA gene, are separated by plasmid DNA and the URA3 marker. Recombination between the repeats excises the URA3 gene and one copy of the repeat, leaving either the wild-type tRNA or the suppressor on the chromosome. A red/white color assay is used to distinguish between the two. We find that some colonies that have lost the URA3 gene are sectored for the suppressor. This suggests that hDNA is formed across the anticodon during the recombination event and then resolved by replication. The disruption of either of two genes involved in recombination and repair, RAD1 and

This thesis addresses different aspects of the question about accuracy of protein synthesis: i) the mechanism of tRNA selection during translation ii) study of ribosomal mutations that affect accuracy and iii) the choice of aminoacyl-tRNA isoacceptors on synonymous codons.. By measuring the codon reading efficiencies of cognate and near-cognate ternary complexes we demonstrate that in optimal physiological conditions accuracy of substrate selection is much higher than previously reported; that during translation the ribosomal A site is not blocked by unspecific binding of the non-cognate tRNAs which would inhibit the speed of protein synthesis. Our results suggest that there is an asymmetry between initial selection and proofreading step concerning the wobble position, and that binding of non-cognate substrate does not induce GTP hydrolysis on the ribosome.. The knowledge obtained from the ribosomal mutant strains can be used to explain the general relation between the structure of the ribosome ...

Post-transcriptional tRNA modifications play a primordial role in the translation process as they influence tRNA stability and folding, cognate codon recognition, stabilization of the codon-anticodon wobble base pairing and correct aminoacylation. In the last years, the awareness is growing that post-transcriptional tRNA modifications, especially at the wobble position, might regulate important cellular processes at the level of protein translation. One of our goals is to decipher the structure, function and regulation of these enzyme complexes in order to contribute to our understanding of their cellular roles and the way they are incorporated in signalling networks. In collaboration with the group of L. Droogmans (ULB, Belgium) we are also investigating the structure and function of a variety of methyltransferases in order to get a better understanding of their tRNA specificity and the contribution of their catalytic and RNA-binding domains to catalysis and substrate binding.. ...

BACKGROUND: While the CCA sequence at the mature 3 end of tRNAs is conserved and critical for translational function, a genetic template for this sequence is not always contained in tRNA genes. In eukaryotes and Archaea, the CCA ends of tRNAs are synthesized post-transcriptionally by CCA-adding enzymes. In Bacteria, tRNA genes template CCA sporadically. RESULTS: In order to understand the variation in how prokaryotic tRNA genes template CCA, we re-annotated tRNA genes in tRNAdb-CE database version 0.8. Among 132,129 prokaryotic tRNA genes, initiator tRNA genes template CCA at the highest average frequency (74.1%) over all functional classes except selenocysteine and pyrrolysine tRNA genes (88.1% and 100% respectively). Across bacterial phyla and a wide range of genome sizes, many lineages exist in which predominantly initiator tRNA genes template CCA. Convergent and parallel retention of CCA templating in initiator tRNA genes evolved in independent histories of reductive genome evolution in Bacteria.
The AUA codon-specific isoleucine tRNA (tRNA(Ile)) in eubacteria has the posttranscriptionally modified nucleoside lysidine (L) at the wobble position of the anticodon (position 34). This modification is a lysine-containing cytidine derivative that converts both the codon specificity of tRNA(Ile) from AUG to AUA and its amino acid specificity from methionine to isoleucine. We identified an essential gene (tilS; tRNA(Ile)-lysidine synthetase) that is responsible for lysidine formation in both Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli. The recombinant enzyme complexed specifically with tRNA(Ile) and synthesized L by utilizing ATP and lysine as substrates. The lysidine synthesis of this enzyme was shown to directly convert the amino acid specificity of tRNA(Ile) from methionine to isoleucine in vitro. Partial inactivation of tilS in vivo resulted in an AUA codon-dependent translational defect, which supports the notion that TilS is an RNA-modifying enzyme that plays a critical role in the accurate ...
In recent years, the determination of several new crystal structures of 70S ribosomal complexes containing tRNAs and mRNA, representing various stages of the translation cycle, has provided a greatly enhanced view of the details of ribosome-mRNA-tRNA interactions (Yusupova et al, 2001; Berk et al, 2005; Jenner et al, 2005; Petry et al, 2005; Korostelev et al, 2006; Selmer et al, 2006). However, it is clear that many aspects are far from completely understood, such as the role of the ribosomal E site.. The 5.5 Å X‐ray structure of a 70S ribosome initiation complex showed that the mRNA E codon is in a conformation that does not allow the formation of base pairs with the tRNA anticodon (Yusupov et al, 2001). Two groups have independently reported crystal structures of the 70S T. thermophilus ribosome in complex with tRNAs and mRNA (Korostelev et al, 2006; Selmer et al, 2006). Selmer and co‐workers determined the 2.8Å crystal structure of a pre‐translocation complex containing 70S ribosome, ...
Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (AARSs) are essential enzymes that specifically aminoacylate one tRNA molecule by the cognate amino acid. They are a family of twenty enzymes, one for each amino acid. By coupling an amino acid to a specific RNA triplet, the anticodon, they are responsible for interpretation of the genetic code. In addition to this translational, canonical role, several aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases also fulfill nontranslational, moonlighting functions. In mammals, nine synthetases, those specific for amino acids Arg, Asp, Gln, Glu, Ile, Leu, Lys, Met and Pro, associate into a multi-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase complex, an association which is believed to play a key role in the cellular organization of translation, but also in the regulation of the translational and nontranslational functions of these enzymes ...

whats interesting is that the tRNA also comes from the genetic code. even more interesting are suppressor mutations, where if a single base is changed in a gene (for instance, causing the placement of stop codon instead of an amino acid, which would be disasterous for the cell) the corresponding sequence that encodes for the tRNA of that original amino acid can also undergo a mutation that changes the anticodon part of the tRNA to set things back again! thus unnatural tRNAs that violate the universality of the genetic code can exist as a survival mechanism ...
Supplement A ribosome is a molecule consisting of two subunits that fit together and work as one to build proteins according to the genetic sequence held within the messenger RNA (mRNA). Using the mRNA as a template, the ribosome traverses each codon, pairing it with the appropriate amino acid. This is done through interacting with transfer RNA (tRNA) containing a complementary anticodon on one end and the appropriate amino acid on the other. Some ribosomes occur freely in the cytosol whereas others are attached to the nuclear membrane or to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) giving the latter a rough appearance, hence, the name rough ER or rER. Ribosomes of prokaryotes (e.g. bacteria) are smaller than most of the ribosomes of eukaryotes (e.g. plants and animals). However, the plastids and mitochondria in eukaryotes have smaller ribosomes similar to those in prokaryotes - a possible indication of the evolutionary origin of these organelles. In mid-1950s, ribosomes were first observed as dense ...
We have obtained functional data for every possible single mutation, for about 14,000 double mutations, and for about 30,000 more highly mutated variants. Surprisingly, 37% of the single mutants retained at least some function. In addition, around 10% of double mutants showed near wild type levels of fluorescence, indicating that despite all of the modifications and structure constraints, tRNA function is relatively robust to mutation. We have also examined mutant performance in a yeast strain with a mutated Rapid tRNA Decay (RTD) quality control pathway, which degrades misfolded or unmodified tRNA. By comparing the performance of tRNA variants in the wild type strain and the decay pathway mutant, we have identified many new targets of this pathway. The majority of these new decay pathway targets are located in parts of the tRNA not previously known to be monitored by the RTD system, such as the anticodon and D stems. By examining the double mutants in relation to their constituent singles, we ...

There is considerable room for exploration in defining what the new possibility space of personalized, self-defined, emergent economic systems might comprise. Opening up economic systems could have different stages and phases. The first position could be having the same structure of current economic systems, but opening up the parties, interaction types, and business models. The idea of decentralized reddit is an example of one such first position. It is still the same Internet pipes, providing the same news items to consumers. What could be different is the hosting, pricing, and business model. The web property reddit could be hosted in a decentralized manner, p2p-hosted by community peers, as opposed to being centrally-served by the company, reddit, Inc. Once the content is hosted by peers, the business model too can change. Instead of indirect advertising-supported centralized models coordinating the serving of eyeballs to vendors, direct pay-for-consumption or freely-contributed content ...
While transcription and translation are not as accurate as DNA replication, there are multiple proofreading mechanisms in place in each step of protein synthesis to ensure accuracy. In translation alone, there are proofreading steps in place for correct aminoacylation of the tRNA molecule, proper codon-anticodon pairing, and also for elongation of the nascent polypeptide chain. Im not as well versed when it comes to transcription, but I do know that there are proofreading mechanisms in place for that process as well. Saying that errors occur frequently is simply not correct ...

Y1 - 2019/5/1. N2 - Translation initiation is a sequential process involving interactions between the 30S small ribosomal subunit, initiation factors and initiator tRNA. The Escherichia coli K-12 strain is unique in the Escherichia because it has two different initiator tRNA sequences, tRNAfMet1 encoded by the metZWV genes and tRNAfMet2 encoded by the metY gene. A mutant of the metY gene was previously made where the anticodon sequence, responsible for specifying the start codon where translation initiation begins, was changed so that it bound to the amber stop codon UAG instead of the usual AUG start codon[1]. ...
Queuosine is a modified pyrrolopyrimidine nucleoside found in the anticodon loop of transfer RNA acceptors for the amino acids tyrosine, asparagine, aspartic acid, and histidine. Since it is exclusively synthesised by bacteria, higher eukaryotes must salvage queuosine or its nucleobase queuine from food and the gut microflora. Previously, animals made deficient in queuine died within 18 days of withdrawing tyrosine-a non-essential amino acid-from the diet [Marks T, Farkas WR (1997) Biochem Biophys Res Commun 230:233-7]. Here we show that human HepG2 cells deficient in queuine and mice made deficient in queuosine modified transfer RNA, by disruption of the tRNA guanine transglycosylae (TGT) enzyme, are compromised in their ability to produce tyrosine from phenylalanine. This has similarities to the disease phenylketonuria, which arises from mutation in the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase or from a decrease in the supply of its cofactor tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4). Immunoblot and kinetic analysis ...
The overall structure of transfer RNA is optimized for its various functions by a series of unique post-transcriptional nucleotide modifications. Since many of these modifications are conserved from prokaryotes through higher eukaryotes, it has been proposed that most modified nucleotides serve to optimize the ability of the tRNA to accurately interact with other components of the protein synthesizing machinery. When a cloned synthetic Escherichia coli tRNAPhe gene was transfected into a bacterial host that carried a defective phenylalanine tRNA-synthetase gene, tRNAPhe was overexpressed by 11-fold. As a result of this overexpression, an undermodified tRNAPhe species was produced that lacked only N6-(Delta 2-isopentenyl)-2-methylthioadenosine (ms2i6A), a hypermodified nucleotide found immediately 3 to the anticodon of all major E. coli tRNAs that read UNN codons. To investigate the role of ms2i6A in E. coli tRNA, we compared the aminoacylation kinetics and in vitro codon-reading properties of ...

Occurs at the ribosomes in the cytoplasm. During translation, amino acids are joined together to make a polypeptide chain (protein) following the sequence of codons (triplets) carried by the mRNA. mRNA attaches to a ribosome.tRNA molecules carry amino acids to ribosome. A tRNA molecule, with an anticodon thats complementary to the first codon on the mRNA, attaches itself to the mRNA by specific base pairing. First codon thats transcribed is called a start codon. A 2nd tRNA molecule attaches to the next codon on mRNA in the same way. The two amino acids attached to the tRNA molecules are joined by a peptide bond. The first tRNA molecule moves away, leaving its amino acid behind. A third tRNA molecule binds to the next codon on the mRNA. Its amino acid binds to the first two and the second tRNA molecule moves away. Process continues, producing a chain of linked amino acids (a polypeptide chain) until theres a stop codon on the mRNA molecule. These tell the ribosome when to stop translation. ...
Byrne R.T., Jenkins H.T., Peters D.T., Whelan F., Stowell J., Aziz N., Kasatsky P., Rodnina M.V., Koonin E.V., Konevega A.L., Antson A.A.. The reduction of specific uridines to dihydrouridine is one of the most common modifications in tRNA. Increased levels of the dihydrouridine modification are associated with cancer. Dihydrouridine synthases (Dus) from different subfamilies selectively reduce distinct uridines, located at spatially unique positions of folded tRNA, into dihydrouridine. Because the catalytic center of all Dus enzymes is conserved, it is unclear how the same protein fold can be reprogrammed to ensure that nucleotides exposed at spatially distinct faces of tRNA can be accommodated in the same active site. We show that the Escherichia coli DusC is specific toward U16 of tRNA. Unexpectedly, crystal structures of DusC complexes with tRNA(Phe) and tRNA(Trp) show that Dus subfamilies that selectively modify U16 or U20 in tRNA adopt identical folds but bind their respective tRNA ...
A premature termination codon (PTC) in the ORF of an mRNA generally leads to production of a truncated polypeptide, accelerated degradation of the mRNA, and depression of overall mRNA expression. Accordingly, nonsense mutations cause some of the most severe forms of inherited disorders. The small-molecule drug ataluren promotes therapeutic nonsense suppression and has been thought to mediate the insertion of near-cognate tRNAs at PTCs. However, direct evidence for this activity has been lacking. Here, we expressed multiple nonsense mutation reporters in human cells and yeast and identified the amino acids inserted when a PTC occupies the ribosomal A site in control, ataluren-treated, and aminoglycoside-treated cells. We find that atalurens likely target is the ribosome and that it produces full-length protein by promoting insertion of near-cognate tRNAs at the site of the nonsense codon without apparent effects on transcription, mRNA processing, mRNA stability, or protein stability. The resulting

tRNAs are heavily decorated posttranscriptionally with numerous chemical modifications, which are essential for shaping up, fine tuning, and regulating all aspects of tRNA functioning. These chemical modifications are dynamically regulated and catalyzed by tRNA modification enzymes[1]. Mutations or dysregulation of tRNA modifiers have been associated with diseases. The emerging importance of tRNA modifications in diseases calls for additional work[2, 3]. How tRNA modifications are regulated by tRNA modification enzymes is in need to be studied ...
Where do physical traits such as height and eye color come from? Biologists say these characteristics are phenotypic (physical) expressions of the genotype-the genetic code. The case for creation can be seen in this amazing genetic code of life. The human bodys trillions of cells use over 75 special kinds of protein and RNA molecules to make one protein following DNAs detailed instructions. A second genetic code has recently been discovered, adding to the complexity of the already intricate molecule of heredity.1. What was the origin of this code? Was it through chance and time (evolution) or design and organization (creation)? The materialistic explanation (evolution) is the antithesis of biblical creation. Could the origin of the genetic code be just a random event? Hardly.2 In fact, a chance origin of biological information is considered by those involved in such research to be inadequate.3 Advocates of evolution must attempt a purely secular explanation of what is quite obviously an ...
The common bacterial base modification N6-methyladenine (m6A) is involved in many pathways related to an organisms ability to survive and interact with its environment.
Aminoacyl tRNA synthetases play a central role in protein synthesis by charging tRNAs with amino acids. Yeast mitochondrial lysyl tRNA synthetase (Msk1), in addition to the aminoacylation of mitochondrial tRNA, also functions as a chaperone to facilitate the import of cytosolic lysyl tRNA. In this report, we show that human mitochondrial Kars (lysyl tRNA synthetase) can complement the growth defect associated with the loss of yeast Msk1 and can additionally facilitate the in vitro import of tRNA into mitochondria. Surprisingly, the import of lysyl tRNA can occur independent of Msk1 in vivo. This suggests that an alternative mechanism is present for the import of lysyl tRNA in yeast.

In biochemistry, wybutosine (yW) is a heavily modified nucleoside of phenylalanine transfer RNA that stabilizes interactions between the codons and anti-codons during protein synthesis. Ensuring accurate synthesis of protein is essential in maintaining health as defects in tRNA modifications are able to cause disease. In eukaryotic organisms, it is found only in position 37, 3-adjacent to the anticodon, of phenylalanine tRNA. Wybutosine enables correct translation through the stabilization of the codon-anticodon base pairing during the decoding process. Using an S. cerevisiae model, the biosynthetic pathway of wybutosine was proposed. Proceeding through a multi-enzymatic process, the first step of the synthesis involves the enzyme N1-methyltransferase TRM5 which methylates the G37 site of phenylalanine tRNA and converts it to m1G37. Then m1G37 acts as a substrate for the enzyme TYW1 and forms the tricyclic core of wybutosine with flavin mononucleotide (FMN) as a cofactor. The enzyme TYW2 then ...
Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO) is caused by a decreased oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) activity due to large-scale deletions of the mitochondrial genome in 50 % of the patients. The deletions encompass structural OXPHOS genes as well as tRNA genes, required for their expression so that the pathogenesis could be due to the deleted OXPHOS subunits or to an impaired mitochondrial translation. We have analyzed the mitochondrial genome of a patient presenting with CPEO for single base substitutions and discovered a novel heteroplasmic mutation in the tRNAAsn gene at position 5692 that converts a highly conserved adenine into a guanine. This mutation is unique because it is located at the transition of the anticodon loop to the anticodon stem and it leads to an additional base pair, thus reducing the number of loop-forming nucleotides from seven to five. Our findings suggest that CPEO can be caused by a single base substition in a mitochondrial tRNA gene so that the ...
We have previously reported the isolation an characterization of a functional initiator tRNA gene, metA, and a second initiator tRNA-like sequence, metB, from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Here we describe the fine mapping of the initiator tRNA gene locus of the avirulent (H37Ra) and virulent (H37Rv) strains of M. tuberculosis. The genomic blot analyses show that the 1.7 kb (harbouring metB) and the 6.0 kb BamHI (harbouring metA) fragments are linked. Further, sequencing of a portion of the 6.0 kb fragment, in conjunction with the sequence of the 1.7 kb fragment confirmed the presence of an IS6110 element in the vicinity of metB. The IS element is flanked by inverted (28 bp, with 3 contiguous mismatches in the middle) and direct (3 bp) repeats considered to be the hallmarks of IS6110 integration sites. The organization of the initiator tRNA gene locus is identical in both the H37Ra and H37Rv strains and they carry a single copy of the functional initiator tRNA gene. Interestingly, the fast growing ...

  • Motivated by our demonstration that aaRS Urzymes cannot interact with the tRNA anticodon (Figure 8) and the proposal that an operational code in the acceptor stem preceded formation of the canonical genetic code, we investigated the unique coding properties of these two regions in tRNAs. (nih.gov)
  • number of possible hydrogen bonds in a base pair) to represent the information embedded in each base of the anticodon and acceptor-stem coding regions of tRNAs. (nih.gov)
  • Biochemical and mass spectrometric analyses of the mutant tRNAs have led to the discovery of a new modified nucleoside, 5-cyanomethyl U in the anticodon wobble position of the mutant tRNAs. (mit.edu)
  • This allows the tRNA to read the isoleucine codon AUA without also reading the methionine codon AUG. To understand why a modified C, and not U or modified U, is used to base pair with A, we mutated the C34 in the anticodon of Haloarcula marismortui isoleucine tRNA (tRNA2Ile) to U, expressed the mutant tRNA in Haloferax volcanii, and purified and analyzed the tRNA. (mit.edu)
  • The G34 to U mutant in the anticodon of another H. marismortui isoleucine tRNA species showed similar codon binding properties. (mit.edu)
  • This result would explain why most archaea and bacteria do not normally use U or a modified U in the anticodon wobble position of isoleucine tRNA for reading the codon AUA. (mit.edu)
  • Evidence for distinct coding properties in tRNA acceptor stems and anticodons, and experimental demonstration that the two synthetase family ATP binding sites can indeed be coded by opposite strands of the same gene supplement these biochemical and bioinformatic data, establishing a solid basis for key intermediates on a path from simple, stereochemically coded, reciprocally catalytic peptide/RNA complexes through the earliest peptide catalysts to contemporary aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases. (nih.gov)
  • In this study, the high-resolution structures of three glycyl-tRNA anticodon arms with anticodon sequences GCC and UCC have been determined. (rice.edu)
  • The structures of the three tRNAGly anticodon arms exhibit small differences between one another and there is no evidence that they form the canonical U-turn motif. (rice.edu)
