Using a variety of molecular techniques, including immuno-electron microscopy, intermolecular chemical cross-linking, and X-ray crystallography, the location of the 5S rRNA within the large ribosomal subunit has been determined to great precision. In bacteria and archaea, the large ribosomal subunit (LSU) itself is composed of two RNA moieties, the 5S rRNA and another larger RNA known as 23S rRNA, along with numerous associated proteins.[3] In eukaryotes, the LSU contains 5S, 5.8S, and 28S rRNAs and even more proteins.[12][13] The structure of LSU in 3-dimensions shows one relatively smooth surface and the opposite surface having three projections, notably the L1 protuberance, the central protuberance (CP), and the L7/L12 stalk. The L1 protuberance and L7/L12 stalk are arranged laterally surrounding CP. The 5S rRNA is located in the CP and participates in formation and structure of this projection. The other major constituents of the central protuberance include the 23S rRNA (or alternatively ...

Quantitative Real Time PCR (qRT-PCR) is an increasingly popular method for the quantitative analysis of gene expression. Despite its high sensitivity, accuracy and wide dynamic range that favour qRT-PCR in gene expression studies, some factors exist that must be taken into account as a possible source of error [1]. A critical element in experimental design is the strategy to quantify the input template cDNA in the sample. Appropriate choice of internal references has been previously shown to be crucial for correct interpretation of expression data [1, 2] and bioinformatic approaches have been developed to increase the accuracy of normalization [3-5]. Although numerous reference genes are currently used for normalization purposes, the most commonly used are still 18 S ribosomal RNA (Rn18S), β-actin (Actb) and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (Gapdh) due to their ubiquitous and relatively high expression levels [6]. Actb and Gapdh are mRNA-encoding housekeeping genes (HKs), and have been ...
Ribosome biogenesis is a very conserved process in the eukaryotic kingdom. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the pathway begins with transcription of the 35S and 5S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) precursors by RNA polymerases I and III, respectively. The association of ribosomal proteins and pre-ribosomal factors with nascent pre-rRNAs gives birth to a 90S pre-ribosomal complex that undergoes various steps of maturation. The 90S complex separates into a pre-60S complex, which will generate the large ribosomal subunit containing mature 25S, 5.8S, and 5S rRNAs, and a pre-40S complex, which will generate the small ribosomal subunit containing 18S rRNA. The maturation of both particles follows two distinct pathways, first in the nucleolus and then in the nucleoplasm, and finally in the cytoplasm after Crm1-dependent export through the nuclear pores (Hurt et al., 1999; Moy and Silver, 1999; for review see Johnson et al., 2002). Several factors are necessary for correct modification, cleavage, and processing of ...
MRM1, 50 µg. Mitochondrial rRNA methyltransferase 1 homolog, also known as MRM1, probably methylates the ribose of guanosine G-2270 in the peptidyl transferase center of the mitochondrial large ribosomal RNA (21S).
The product of the PET56 nuclear gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was shown to be required for ribose methylation at a universally conserved nucleotide in the peptidyl transferase center of the mitochondrial large ribosomal RNA (21S rRNA). Cells reduced in this activity were deficient in formation of functional large subunits of the mitochondrial ribosome. The purified Pet56 protein catalyzed the site-specific formation of 2-O-methylguanosine on in vitro transcripts of both mitochondrial 21S rRNA and Escherichia coli 23S rRNA. These results provide evidence for an essential modified nucleotide in rRNA ...

The metabolism of high-molecular-weight RNA in the nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions of newborn and adult rat brain was investigated after the intracranial administration of [32P]Pi. In young brain, a considerable proportion of the newly synthesized radioactive RNA is transferred to the cytoplasm, in contrast with the adult brain, where there appears to be a high intranuclear turnover. Electrophoretic analysis of the newly synthesized RNA showed that processing of the rRNA precursor to yield the 28S and 18S rRNA may be more rapid in the adult than in the young, although most of the adult rRNA in the nucleus is not transferred to the cytoplasm. In young brain, processing is probably tightly coupled to transport of rRNA into the cytoplasm, so that 28S and 18S rRNA are not subjected to possible degradation within the nucleus. Polyadenylated RNA turns over in concert with high-molecular-weight RNA in the nuclei of the adult rat brain. In the cytoplasm the polyadenylated RNA has a higher turnover ...

40. Appellants argue that after the publication of Polisky, successful synthesis of protein was still uncertain. They belittle the predictive value of the observation that expression of the transcribed RNA in Polisky produced beta-galactosidase with a greater than normal molecular weight, arguing that since ribosomal RNA is not normally translated, the polypeptide chains that were added to the end of the beta-galactosidase were "junk" or "nonsense" proteins. This characterization ignores the clear implications of the reported observations. The Polisky study directly proved that a readthrough transcript messenger RNA had been produced. The preliminary observation showed that this messenger RNA was read and used for successful translation. It was well known in the art that ribosomal RNA was made of the same nucleotides as messenger RNA, that any sequence of nucleotides could be read in groups of three as codons, and that reading these codons should specify a polypeptide chain that would elongate ...

Deregulation of translational control can promote cellular transformation. Protein synthesis and the expression of components of the translation machinery are elevated in cancers and contribute to tumorigenesis (1-5, 7). Here, we show that nuclear ErbB2 promotes binding of RNA Pol I to rDNA, co-occupies the rRNA gene with β-actin and RNA Pol I, and stimulates rRNA production and protein translation independently of traditional ErbB2 downstream PI3-K and ERK signalings, suggesting that nuclear ErbB2 may contribute to oncogenesis by upregulating total cellular translation. rRNA synthesis by RNA Pol I plays a critical role in production of mature ribosomes that are central protein synthesis machinery of the cells. Perturbation of RNA Pol I activity as well as rRNA and protein biosynthesis (i.e., translation control) by oncoproteins such as Myc or tumor suppressors p53, RB, and ADP ribosylation factor has been reported to be associated with tumor development (1, 2, 7-10). The capability of Myc to ...
This, my Cand. Scient. (MS) project, was completed at the Department of Biological Chemistry, Institute of Molecular Biology, University of Copenhagen. My supervisor was Associate Professor Birte Vester who was part of the RNA group led by Professor Roger Garrett. Here I did three years of lab-work investigating posttranscriptional modifications of ribosomal RNA using standard lab methods combined with mass spectrometry. I was able to isolate the part of the 23S ribosomal RNA that constitutes the peptidyl transferase centre using site-directed RNaseH digestion followed by isolation with PAGE. The isolated fragments were analysed by MALDI-MS, where I was so fortunate to collaborate with Associate Professor Finn Kirpekar (University of Southern Denmark) who analyzed the fragments - and taught me to perform this type of analyzis on equipment in Copenhagen. I also screened these fragments for the mass-silent pseudouridines using chemical modification and detection with RT-PCR and visualization on ...

Abstract: DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is proposed to investigate the hypothesis that chronic ethanol feeding results in decreased levels of hepatic S-adenosy-L-methionine (Adomet) and that this deficiency results in impaired mitochondrial ribosome assembly and depressed protein synthesis. Published data has demonstrated that ethanol has a pronounced effect upon oxidative phosphorylation in the liver. Ethanol consumption results in decreased levels of essential polypeptides encoded for: exclusively by the mitochondrial genome-that are utilized in the assembly of electron transport chain (ETC) complexes. As a consequence, their activities are depressed and ATP production decreases, investigations is to the mechanism(s) responsible for the phenomenon revealed an ethanol-elicited decrease in the number of fully functioning mitochondrial ribosomes (mitoribosomes) along with an increased tendency for them to dissociate upon isolation, This suggests that iethanol-mediated effects at the ...
Conventional sequencing begins with a culture of identical cells as a source of DNA. However, early metagenomic studies revealed that there are probably large groups of microorganisms in many environments that cannot be cultured and thus cannot be sequenced. These early studies focused on 16S ribosomal RNA sequences which are relatively short, often conserved within a species, and generally different between species. Many 16S rRNA sequences have been found which do not belong to any known cultured species, indicating that there are numerous non-isolated organisms out there.. Early molecular work in the field was conducted by Norman R. Pace and colleagues, who used PCR to explore the diversity of ribosomal RNA sequences.[6] The insights gained from these breakthrough studies led Pace to propose the idea of cloning DNA directly from environmental samples as early as 1985.[7] This led to the first report of isolating and cloning bulk DNA from an environmental sample, published by Pace and ...
Humanin is a peptide encoded in the mitochondrial genome by the 16S ribosomal RNA gene, MT-RNR2. Its structure contains a three-turn α-helix, and no symmetry. In in vitro and animal models, it appears to have cytoprotective effects. Humanin is encoded in the mitochondrial genome by the 16S ribosomal RNA gene, MT-RNR2. The expressed peptide contains a three-turn α-helix, and has no symmetry. The length of the peptide depends on where it is produced. If it is produced inside the mitochondria it will be 21 amino acids long. If it is produced outside the mitochondria, in the cytosol, it will be 24 amino acids long. Both peptides have been shown to have biological activity. The rat, Rattus norvegicus, has a gene, rattin, that encodes a 38 amino acid peptide homologous to humanin. The two genes produce cDNAs that show 88% sequence identity. The peptides are 81% identical, with the carboxyl terminal sequence 14 amino acids longer in rattin. Of the 24 amino acids in the rest of the sequence, 20 are ...

Ribosomes are giant molecular machines that produce all proteins necessary for life. In eukaryotic cells, their assembly is a highly elaborate and carefully coordinated process. The Klinge labs research is aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms that govern early stages of eukaryotic ribosome assembly. Ribosomes are responsible for decoding the information contained in messenger RNA to synthesize proteins used in all domains of life. Ribosome assembly, the process by which ribosomes are synthesized, involves approximately 200 protein and RNA factors in eukaryotes, most of which are essential. These factors are involved in all stages of ribosome assembly, from transcription of ribosomal RNA in the nucleolus to export into the cytoplasm, where the final stages of maturation and quality control occur. As ribosome assembly progresses, more and more of this machinery is released from intermediate complexes until the ribosomal subunits complete maturation.. The structure of this molecular ...
This example of a molecular phylogenetic tree is an unrooted dendrogram. The length of the branches quantitatively represents the evolutionary distance separating gene sequences within these organisms.This particular tree is based on the analysis of small subunit ribosomal RNA sequences. In this tree, the tips of branches are modern organisms. Each node within the tree represents a common ancestor. The last common ancestor (the root) is here marked with the star. How this is determined will be described in a later lecture.. Notice that there is no explicit or implied ranking of above (superior) or below (inferior) in the tree. Evolutionary distance (divergence) is measured along the lengths of the branches connecting species. There are no axes in this graph.. One of the most exciting outcomes of this method early on was the discovery of a new type of organism - the Archaea (a.k.a. archaebacteria). Previously it was thought that all living things were either Bacteria (a.k.a. eubacteria) or ...
In plants, transcription is initiated from a promoter located in the IGS. There are subrepeated regions upstream and downstream of a transcription starting site that have been proposed to have regulatory function (Flavell et al., 1988; Sardana et al., 1993; Komarova et al., 2004). The primary transcript is of variable length (6-9 kb) and is processed into mature 18S, 5.8S, and 26S RNA by excision of ITS1 and ITS2 and a transcribed part of the IGS (called externally transcribed spacer [ETS]). Maturation of primary transcript, post-transcriptional modifications, and ribosome assembly occur in the nucleolus. The regulation of rRNA gene expression occurs through the suppression of whole loci (termed nucleolar dominance) and at genes within the array. Large numbers of repeats are not transcribed and are packed into transcriptionally inactive heterochromatin. Formation of rDNA heterochromatin is believed to be under epigenetic control mediated by modifications of DNA and histones. In mammals, cytosine ...

Poly(A)-containing mRNA was isolated from Human Universal Reference RNA (Agilent #740000). Libraries were made using the NEBNext Ultra II Directional RNA Kit (plus the NEBNext Poly(A) mRNA Magnetic Isolation Module), Kapa Stranded mRNA-Seq Kit, Kapa mRNA HyperPrep Kit and Illumina TruSeq Stranded mRNA Kit. Libraries were sequenced on an Illumina NextSeq® 500 using paired-end mode (2x76 bp). Read pairs were assessed to be ribosomal RNA (rRNA) if they contain 6 or more 32 base matches to 18S, 28S, 5S, 5.8S, 16S or 12S human rRNA sequences (mirabait 4.9). Percent rRNA remaining was calculated by dividing rRNA reads by the total number of reads passing instrument quality filtering. Average percent rRNA remaining is shown for three replicates. The NEBNext poly(A) Ultra II Directional RNA workflow is the most efficient in removing rRNA from total RNA. ...
We first examined whether there is any change in the expression of ARMS2 and HTRA1 between normal aged and AMD retinas without genotype constraints. The aged retinas were obtained from 20 unrelated individuals (average age=71.8 year), while the AMD group consisted of 12 retinas (average age=77.1 year). Gene expression was measured by real-time qRT-PCR and normalized to rRNA expression, with aged normal retinas as a reference. There was no significant difference in either ARMS2 or HTRA1 mRNA expression levels between the two groups (ARMS2, fold change average=1.051, p=0.487; HTRA1, fold change average=0.991, p=0.918). As predicted, the housekeeping genes (used as controls), HPRT1 and GAPDH, did not show significant change in expression with age (fold change average=0.963, p=0.376 and fold change average=0.997, p=0.934), validating a high quality of RNA from the human retinas for qRT-PCR analysis. To determine changes in RNA expression due to aging, we compared the gene expressions of normal young ...
The second extended Meyer quote youve dug up is just awful. In addition to the whole protein-dominated ribosome, Meyer claims that 1) peptidyl transferase ribozymes are made of ribosomal RNA and 2) that these ribozymes are quite limited because they require another catalyst. (1) is wrong - the Zhang and Cech papers he cites _evolved_ ribozymes from random sequence, they are not free-standing ribosomal RNA. With (2) its hard to tell what Meyer was even thinking: my best guess is that the other catalyst hes referring to is magnesium, which is the only thing that could be considered another catalyst mentioned in the Zhang and Cech paper. If so, thats absurd - first, they dont even show that magnesium is playing a catalytic role, it may just be required for ribozyme folding (as it is for proper folding and function of the protein dominated ribosome); second, even if it is a cofactor involved directly in catalysis, that is incredibly common, not a weakness of the ribozyme. Many enzymes, ...
It has been shown that the overall transcription of ribosomal RNA genes can be stimulated by many signals (41); however, increased transcription is not due to an increased number of actively transcribed rDNA units but instead is due to changes in the rate of transcription, especially of elongation (42, 43). B-WICH is an ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex containing SNF2h, a human ISWI ATPase, and it was shown to associate with Pol I facilitating its transcription (30). The SIRT7 interaction with components of the B-WICH complex supports a hypothesis where SIRT7 regulates the rate of elongation of Pol I through the ATP-dependent remodeling activities of B-WICH.. SIRT7 knockdown is known to inhibit rDNA transcription (9, 10), and our results show for the first time that SIRT7 knockdown also leads to a reduction in the large subunit of Pol I at the protein level but not at the mRNA level. A question to be addressed in future studies is whether this regulation of Pol I protein level occurs ...
In the 1980s scientists discovered that, despite microbes invisibility to us, the microbial world is as, or more, diverse than the macroscopic world of plants and animals. Traditional measures of diversity relied on physical traits, but such criteria can not be used to assess relationships between microorganisms and macroorganisms because there are so few physical traits common to both. In the 1980s Carl Woese suggested that the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences of certain common genes could be used to measure relatedness among radically different organisms. He picked the genes that encode ribosomal RNA (rRNA). Ribosomes, the protein-RNA complexes that are the scaffold on which proteins are synthesized, are common to all cells, both prokaryotic and eukaryotic. Despite differences in size, the sequences of rRNA molecules contain regions that are highly conserved, thus highly similar. Woese chose the intermediate sized rRNA molecule, 16S rRNA in prokaryotes and 18S rRNA in eukaryotes because ...
