Sequence Analysis, Protein
A set of three nucleotides in a protein coding sequence that specifies individual amino acids or a termination signal (CODON, TERMINATOR). Most codons are universal, but some organisms do not produce the transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER) complementary to all codons. These codons are referred to as unassigned codons (CODONS, NONSENSE).
The small RNA molecules, 73-80 nucleotides long, that function during translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC) to align AMINO ACIDS at the RIBOSOMES in a sequence determined by the mRNA (RNA, MESSENGER). There are about 30 different transfer RNAs. Each recognizes a specific CODON set on the mRNA through its own ANTICODON and as aminoacyl tRNAs (RNA, TRANSFER, AMINO ACYL), each carries a specific amino acid to the ribosome to add to the elongating peptide chains.

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.

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.

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)

The T Box Mechanism and Anticodon Stem-Loops: Molecular and Structural Studies of Glycyl-tRNA Anticodon Stem-Loops and Their...
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 ...
Nucleotide sequences of two serine tRNAs with a GGA anticodon: the structure-function relationships in the serine family of E....
We have determined the nucleotide sequence of the major species of E. coli tRNASer and of a minor species having the same GGA anticodon. These two tRNAs should recognize the UCC and UCU codons, the most widely used codons for serine in the highly expressed genes of E. coli. The two sequences differ in only one position of the D-loop. Neither tRNA has a modified adenosine in the position 3-adjacent to the anticodon. This can be rationalized on the basis of a structural constraint in the anticodon stem and may be related to optimization of the codon-anticodon interaction. Comparison of all E.coli serine tRNAs (and that encoded by bacteriophage T4) reveals characteristic (possibly functional) features. Evolutionary analysis suggests an eubacterial origin of the T4 tRNASer gene and the existence of a recent common ancestor for the tRNASerGGA and tRNASerGUC genes. ...
The enigmatic mitochondrial genome of Rhabdopleura compacta(Pterobranchia) reveals insights into selection of an efficient tRNA...
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 . 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 ). 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 ...

The precise interplay between the mRNA codon and the tRNA anticodon is crucial for ensuring efficient and accurate translation by the ribosome. The insertion of RNA nucleobase derivatives in the mRNA allowed us to modulate the stability of the codon-anticodon interaction in the decoding site of bacterial and eukaryotic ribosomes, allowing an in-depth analysis of codon recognition. In addition to a quantitative analysis of the protein products that are formed in dependence of the modified codons, the interpretation of these RNA nucleobase derivatives by the ribosomal decoding site was also determined. For each modification, the translated peptides from the bacterial and eukaryotic systems were purified and analyzed by mass spectrometry.

C to U editing at position 32 of the anticodon loop precedes tRNA 5′ leader removal in trypanosomatids - Semantic Scholar
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

Mutations which alter the elbow region of tRNA2Gly reduce T4 gene 60 translational bypassing efficiency | The EMBO Journal
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 ...

Recognize amino acid
The specificity of the amino acid activation is as critical for the translational accuracy as the correct matching of the codon with the anticodon. The reason is that the ribosome only sees the anticodon of the tRNA during translation. Thus, the ribosome will not be able to discriminate between tRNAs with the same anticodon but linked to different amino acids ...

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 ...
Pharos : Target Details - Q9BXR0
Catalytic subunit of the queuine tRNA-ribosyltransferase (TGT) that catalyzes the base-exchange of a guanine (G) residue with queuine (Q) at position 34 (anticodon wobble position) in tRNAs with GU(N) anticodons (tRNA-Asp, -Asn, -His and -Tyr), resulting in the hypermodified nucleoside queuosine (7-(((4,5-cis-dihydroxy-2-cyclopenten-1-yl)amino)methyl)-7-deazaguanosine) (PubMed:11255023, PubMed:20354154). 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 queuine, allowing a nucleophilic attack on the C1 of the ribose to form the product (By similarity). This gene encodes the catalytic subunit of tRNA-guanine transglycosylase. tRNA-guanine transglycosylase is a heterodimeric enzyme complex that plays a critical role in tRNA modification by synthesizing the 7-deazaguanosine queuosine, which is
Imprints of the genetic code in the ribosome | PNAS
The establishment of the genetic code remains elusive nearly five decades after the code was elucidated. The stereochemical hypothesis postulates that the code developed from interactions between nucleotides and amino acids, yet supporting evidence in a biological context is lacking. We show here that anticodons are selectively enriched near their respective amino acids in the ribosome, and that such enrichment is significantly correlated with the canonical code over random codes. Ribosomal anticodon-amino acid enrichment further reveals that specific codons were reassigned during code evolution, and that the code evolved through a two-stage transition from ancient amino acids without anticodon interaction to newer additions with anticodon interaction. The ribosome thus serves as a molecular fossil, preserving biological evidence that anticodon-amino acid interactions shaped the evolution of the genetic code.. ...
IDEALS @ Illinois: Investigation of Ribosome Structure and Ribosome-Transfer Rna Interaction Using T4 Rna Ligase
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). ...
Wobble Hypothesis - The School of Biomedical Sciences Wiki
The Wobble Hypothesis, by Francis Crick, states that the 3rd base in an mRNA codon can undergo non-Watson-Crick base pairing with the 1st base of a tRNA anticodon  The mRNA codons first 2 bases form Hydrogen bonds with their corresponding bases on the tRNA anticodon in the usual Watson-Crick manner, in that they only form base pairs with complimentary bases.  However, the formation of Hydrogen bonds between the 3rd base on the codon and the 1st base on the anticodon can potentially occur in a non-Watson-Crick manner. Therefore different base pairs to those usually seen can form at this position.  ...
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 ...

To elucidate the mechanisms by which the translational machinery adapts to such changes, we perturbed the tRNA pool of Saccharomyces cerevisiae by tRNA gene deletion. We then evolved the deletion strain and observed that the genetic adaptation was recurrently based on a strategic mutation that changed the anticodon of other tRNA genes to match that of the deleted one. Strikingly, a systematic search in hundreds of genomes revealed that anticodon mutations occur throughout the tree of life. We further show that ...
which strand is the messenger rna complementary to
It transports the genetic information into the cytoplasm, where the ribosomes use it as a template to produce a specific protein (translation). TGC-TTA. mRNA that is transcribed is normally a copy of the sense strand, however, it is the antisense strand that is transcribed. The RNA product is complementary to the template strand of DNA and is almost identical to the nontemplate DNA strand, or the sense strand. As shown schematically above, messenger RNA is synthesized complementary and antiparallel to the template strand (anticodons) of DNA, so the resulting mRNA consists of codons corresponding to those in the coding strand of DNA. cDNA is often used to clone eukaryotic genes in prokaryotes.

Biocurious: Molecule of the Month: Elongation factors
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 ...

DVU 0727 protein (Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough) - STRING interaction network
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 ...
tadA, an essential tRNA-specific adenosine deaminase from Escherichia coli. - Surrey Research Insight Open Access
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, ...
One ancestor for two codes viewed from the perspective of two complementary modes of tRNA aminoacylation | Biology Direct |...
The genetic code is brought into action by 20 aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases. These enzymes are evenly divided into two classes (I and II) that recognize tRNAs from the minor and major groove sides of the acceptor stem, respectively. We have reported recently that: (1) ribozymic precursors of the synthetases seem to have used the same two sterically mirror modes of tRNA recognition, (2) having these two modes might have helped in preventing erroneous aminoacylation of ancestral tRNAs with complementary anticodons, yet (3) the risk of confusion for the presumably earliest pairs of complementarily encoded amino acids had little to do with anticodons. Accordingly, in this communication we focus on the acceptor stem. Our main result is the emergence of a palindrome structure for the acceptor stems common ancestor, reconstructed from the phylogenetic trees of Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya. In parallel, for pairs of ancestral tRNAs with complementary anticodons, we present updated evidence of concerted
Modomics - A Database of RNA Modifications
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 ...
TRMT112 - Multifunctional methyltransferase subunit TRM112-like protein - Homo sapiens (Human) - TRMT112 gene & protein
Acts as an activator of both rRNA/tRNA and protein methyltransferases (PubMed:25851604). Together with methyltransferase BUD23, methylates the N(7) position of a guanine in 18S rRNA (PubMed:25851604). The heterodimer with HEMK2/N6AMT1 catalyzes N5-methylation of ETF1 on Gln-185, using S-adenosyl L-methionine as methyl donor (PubMed:18539146). The heterodimer with ALKBH8 catalyzes the methylation of 5-carboxymethyl uridine to 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine at the wobble position of the anticodon loop in target tRNA species (PubMed:20308323). Involved in the pre-rRNA processing steps leading to small-subunit rRNA production (PubMed:25851604).
Mitotic sectored colonies: evidence of heteroduplex DNA formation during direct repeat recombination. - Semantic Scholar
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

One unique example of RNA processing is non-conventional splicing of RNAs, which is an essential step during transfer RNA (tRNA) maturation. tRNAs are transcribed as precursor transcripts (pre-tRNA) and are subjected to multiple posttranscriptional processing events before they can fulfil their function. Intron-containing pre-tRNAs undergo non-conventional splicing-a cytosolic, enzyme-catalysed processing reaction. The splicing of pre-tRNAs occurs in two steps: The intron is first excised by a splicing endonuclease and the resulting tRNA exon halves are ligated by tRNA ligase to form a fully matured functional tRNA. Because eukaryotic tRNA introns disrupt the anticodon stem-loop structure, the removal of these introns is an essential process ...

Accuracy of codon recognition in bacterial protein synthesis
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 ...

An Open Letter to the Grain Foods Foundation | Dr. William Davis
Dear Dr. Davis,. Please reconsider your use of the term genetic code. Both in your book and blog you use that term when referring to what should be described as a genetic sequence, DNA sequence, gene allele, or some equivalent synonym. The term genetic code has a very specific meaning that differs from your usage. It refers to the three-base RNA sequences within the anticodon loops of the various tRNA molecules that are complimentary to their cognate mRNA codons within the coding regions of gene transcripts.. I would also like to defend characterizing chemical and irradiation mutagenesis techniques as traditional as opposed to genetic engineering. As one whose research career in mutagenesis has spanned this transition I can confirm the usage. Historically, traditional plant and animal breeders have patiently relied upon spontaneous, random mutations to confer desirable characteristics on their breeding lines. Since most mutations are silent or deleterious rather than helpful, this is a ...
The Versees Lab | SBRC
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.. ...
