Peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase (Pth) catalyzes the breakdown of peptidyl-tRNA into peptide and tRNA components. Pth from Acinetobacter baumannii (AbPth) was cloned, expressed, purified and crystallized in a native unbound (AbPth-N) state and in a bound state with the phosphate ion and cytosine arabinoside (cytarabine) (AbPth-C). Structures of AbPth-N and AbPth-C were determined at 1.36 and 1.10 Å resolutions, respectively. The structure of AbPth-N showed that the active site is filled with water molecules. In the structure of AbPth-C, a phosphate ion is present in the active site, while cytarabine is bound in a cleft which is located away from the catalytic site. The cytarabine-binding site is formed with residues: Gln19, Trp27, Glu30, Gln31, Lys152, Gln158 and Asp162. In the structure of AbPth-N, the side chains of two active-site residues, Asn70 and Asn116, were observed in two conformations. Upon binding of the phosphate ion in the active site, the side chains of both residues were ordered to ...
The Peptidyl-tRNA Hydrolase 2 (PTRH2) gene codes for a highly conserved mitochondrial protein. This protein prevents the accumulation of dissociated peptidyl-tRNA, and plays an important role in regulating cell survival and death. It promotes cell survival as part of an integrin-signaling pathway for cells attached to the extracellular matrix (ECM), through interaction with focal adhesion kinase (FAK) and subsequent activation of the PI3K-AKT-NFkB pathway. It also induces Bcl-2 transcription that blocks the intrinsic mitochondrial apoptotic pathway. PTRH2 functions as a phosphoprotein that regulates NFkB and ERK signaling. In cells that have lost their attachment to the ECM through anoikos, PTRH2 promotes apoptosis. Upon loss of integrin-mediated cell attachment to the ECM, PTRH2 protein is phosphorylated, is released from the mitochondria into the cytosol, and promotes apoptosis through interactions with transcriptional regulator amino-terminal enhancer of split (AES). Defects in this protein ...
In prokaryotes, several mRNA sequences surrounding the initiation codon have been found to influence the translation process; these include the downstream region and its codon context, the Shine-Dalgarno sequence and the S1 ribosomal protein-binding site. In this thesis, the purpose has been to study the role of the downstream region and Shine-Dalgarno-like sequences on early translation elongation and gene expression in Escherichia coli.. The downstream region (DR) after the initiation codon (around five to seven codons), has an important role in the initiation of translation. We find that most of the codons which give very low gene expression at +2 (considering AUG as +1), reach 5 to 10 fold higher expression when those codons are positioned posteriori to +2, with the exception of the NGG codons. The NGG codons abort the translation process if located within the first five codons of the DR, due to peptidyl-tRNA drop-off. However, when the NGG codons are situated further down from the DR, the ...
aminoacyl tRNA synthetase p18 component: shares a protein motif with the beta and gamma subunits of eukaryotic elongation factor 1; amino acid sequence given in first source
From Prosite: Peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase (EC 3.1.1.29) (PTH) is a bacterial enzyme that cleaves peptidyl-tRNA or N-acyl-aminoacyl-tRNA to yield free peptides or N-acyl-amino acids and tRNA. The natural substrate for this enzyme may be peptidyl-tRNA which drop off the ribosome during protein synthesis ...
First, while the tRNA with the growing protein (called a peptidyl-tRNA) rests in the Psite, a tRNA with an amino acid (called an aminoacyl-tRNA) enters the A site and binds to the codon on the mRNA. Second, the peptidyl-tRNA attaches the growing protein to the amino acid on the aminoacyl-tRNA. Now the tRNA in the P site has no amino acids attached to it ...

The ribosome uses this mRNA as template and translates each codon by pairing it with appropriate amino acid which is provided by aminoacyl-tRNA (aminoacyl-tRNA contains a complementary anti-codon). The ribosome contains three RNA binding sites as A, P and E. The A site binds an aminoacyl-tRNA; the P site binds a peptidyl-tRNA and E site binds a free tRNA before it exits the ribosome as can be seen in the diagram ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Signaling pathways for TNF production induced by human aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase-associating factor, p43. AU - Park, Heonyong. AU - Park, Sang Gyu. AU - Kim, Junghee. AU - Ko, Young Gyu. AU - Kim, Sunghoon. PY - 2002/11. Y1 - 2002/11. N2 - The p43 protein is associated with human macromolecular aminoacyl tRNA synthetase complex and secreted to up-regulate diverse proinflammatory genes including TNF. Here we focused on the p43-induced TNF production and determined its responsible signal pathway. The p43-induced TNF production was mediated by the activation of MAPK family members, ERK and p38 MAPK, and by IκB degradation leading to the activation of NFκB. We also studied the upstream molecules for ERK and p38 MAPK by using a variety of inhibitors. The inhibitors for protein kinase C (PKC) and phospholipase C (PLC) prevented the p43-induced TNF production. Interestingly, all of the effective drugs inhibited the ERK activity, while the drugs had no effects on p38 MAPK activity and ...
We recently reported that N-acetylphenylalanylphenylalanine (AcPhe-Phe) was produced from the peptidyl-transfer RNA (tRNA) analog N-acetylphenylalanyl- tRNA (AcPhe-tRNA) and phenylalanyl-tRNA (Phe-tRNA) in the presence of the entire 23S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) or with domain V alone prepared by in vitro transcription (Research Article, 31 July, p. 666) (1, 2). However, we subsequently discovered that there were problems with the identification of the products by thin-layer chromatography (TLC). We (3) and Khaitovich et al. (4) found independently that the spot on the TLC plate that we previously identified as AcPhe-Phe consisted mainly of AcPhe-methyl- or ethyl-ester (AcPhe-OMe or AcPhe-OEt), which might have been produced by the reaction of AcPhe-tRNA and residual alcohol (0.1% or less) in the RNA preparations.. Once we discovered this product misidentification on the TLC plates, we realized that the data in our Science paper concerning quantitative analysis of the spot were not definitive.. In ...

The ribosome has three binding sites for tRNA molecules that span the space between the two ribosomal subunits: the A (aminoacyl),[19] P (peptidyl), and E (exit) sites. In addition, the ribosome has two other sites for tRNA binding that are used during mRNA decoding or during the initiation of protein synthesis. These are the T site (named elongation factor Tu) and I site (initiation).[20][21] By convention, the tRNA binding sites are denoted with the site on the small ribosomal subunit listed first and the site on the large ribosomal subunit listed second. For example, the A site is often written A/A, the P site, P/P, and the E site, E/E.[20] The binding proteins like L27, L2, L14, L15, L16 at the A- and P- sites have been determined by affinity labeling by A.P. Czernilofsky et al. (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci, USA, pp. 230-34, 1974). Once translation initiation is complete, the first aminoacyl tRNA is located in the P/P site, ready for the elongation cycle described below. During translation ...
Background Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (AARSs) catalyze the first step of protein synthesis. We also established a strategy to check the natural activity of rhTyrRS by calculating aminoacylation and IL-8 launch in rhTyrRS-treated HL-60 cells. Conclusions The characterization of purified rhTyrRS indicated that proteins could be found in pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic research. and animal research could possibly be carried out to judge its toxic and pharmacologic results then. In this scholarly study, rhTyrRS was indicated at a higher level in and purified for potential preclinical testing. Strategies Cells and antibodies The skilled stress BL21 (F-ompT hsdS (rB-mB-) gal dcm; providded by aTyr Pharma) was utilized as the sponsor for rhTyrRS manifestation. This stress was transformed using the pET24a inducible manifestation vector where the His-tag series was deleted as well as the T7 promoter was changed having a Tac promoter.

Elongation requires the elongation factors,ref,Stryer, Biochemistry, Seventh edition, 2007: 936,/ref, EF-Tu, EF-Ts and EF-G as well as GTP to supply the energy. Elongation describes the process of aminoacyl tRNA molecules binding to the codon. A [[Peptide bond,peptide bond]] is formed between the amino acid of the tRNA in the P site and the amino acid in the tRNA molecule that has just arrived at the A site; the formation of this peptide bond is catalysed by the 23S subunit. The amino acid in the P site is released from its tRNA molecule and the ribosome moves along so as to transfer the tRNA currently in the A site into the P site. This step is known as transloaction. The uncharged tRNA i.e. tRNA without an amino acid, moves into the E (empty) site. ,ref,http://rpi.edu/dept/bcbp/molbiochem/MBWeb/mb2/part1/translate.htm,/ref,,br ...

As you might have guessed by Sareptas run to nearly $56, the data on eteplirsen has been intriguing. In July the company reported that those patients which had been given eteplirsen from the start of the phase 2 study had experienced a decline in the six-minute-walk-test (6MWT) of 33.2 meters, or 8.5%, through week 144, resulting in a treatment benefit of 75.1 meters. Even patients that were originally in the control group and were subsequently switched over the eteplirsen continue to show 6MWT stabilization from their initial drop-off from baseline.. However, what caused Sarepta to nosedive late last year were two key events. First, the companys prime competitor Prosensa (NASDAQ:RNA) and GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK), saw their late-stage DMD drug, drisapersen, which works by a similar exon-skipping mechanism as eteplirsen, fail miserably in clinical studies. The drug is still being studied as a potential treatment for early stage DMD, but Glaxo has given up its licensing rights to drisapersen ...
Overweight teens eat fewer calories than their thinner peers, a new study says. So why do they weigh more? Researchers suspect a drop-off in exercise in the tween and teen years may be one reason.
Selenium, a trace element, is found in the amino acid selenocysteine (Sec) and is cotranslationally incorporated into the protein polypeptide chain via the codon UGA. Although UGA generally signals translation termination, mRNAs that contain a conserved SECIS element in their 3 untranslated regions are able to decode UGA as Sec [1]. Sec is synthesized on a unique tRNA [2, 3], termed tRNA[Ser]Sec because it is first aminoacylated by serine, which is then converted to selenocysteine. Since this is the only tRNA that supports Sec incorporation into proteins, the absence of tRNA[Ser]Sec results in protein chain termination instead of Sec incorporation. As discussed below, selenoproteins are enzymes with Sec in the active site. Therefore, even if a truncated protein lacking Sec is stable, it will not be biologically active. Thus, the absence of tRNA[Ser]Sec results in complete functional selenoprotein deficiency. Whole mouse homozygous deletion of the tRNA[Ser]Sec gene Trsp is embryonic lethal [4]. ...
Mistranslation can follow two events during protein synthesis: production of non-cognate amino acid:transfer RNA (tRNA) pairs by aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) and inaccurate selection of aminoacyl-tRNAs by the ribosome. Many aaRSs actively edit non-cognate amino acids, but editing mechanisms are not evolutionarily conserved, and their physiological significance remains unclear. To address the connection between aaRSs and mistranslation, the evolutionary divergence of tyrosine editing by phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase (PheRS) was used as a model. Certain PheRSs are naturally error prone, most notably a Mycoplasma example that displayed a low level of specificity consistent with elevated mistranslation of the proteome. Mycoplasma PheRS was found to lack canonical editing activity, relying instead on discrimination against the non-cognate amino acid by kinetic proofreading. This mechanism of discrimination is inadequate for organisms where translation is more accurate, as Mycoplasma PheRS failed ...

N2 - Cysteine (Cys) is inserted into proteins in response to UGC and UGU codons. Herein, we show that supplementation of mammalian cells with thiophosphate led to targeted insertion of Cys at the UGA codon of thioredoxin reductase 1 (TR1). This Cys was synthesized by selenocysteine (Sec) synthase on tRNA [Ser]Sec and its insertion was dependent on the Sec insertion sequence element in the 3′ UTR of TR1 mRNA. The substrate for this reaction, thiophosphate, was synthesized by selenophosphate synthetase 2 from ATP and sulfide and reacted with phosphoseryl-tRNA[Ser]Sec to generate Cys-tRNA[Ser]Sec. Cys was inserted in vivo at ...
The biosynthesis and activity of the translational apparatus, encompassing rRNA, ribosomal proteins, tRNA, aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, translation factors, and modifying enzymes, represent a major investment of cellular resources. This chapter summarizes available information about translational gene organization and expression in Bacillus subtilis and other gram-positive organisms, incorporating new information from the B. subtilis genome sequence, and provides comparisons to the extensive information available about these systems in Escherichia coli. Additional ribosomal protein genes are scattered around the genome, either alone or in small groups. All are transcribed in the same direction as DNA replication, with the exception of rpsD, rpsT, and rpmB. Translation elongation requires elongation factor (EF)-Tu to bring aminoacylated tRNA into the A site of the elongating ribosome, EF-Ts to recycle EF-Tu from its inactive GDP-bound state to the GTP-bound state required for tRNA binding, and EFG, which

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases should ensure high accuracy in tRNA aminoacylation. However, the absence of significant structural differences between amino acids always poses a direct challenge for some aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, such as leucyl-tRNA synthetase (LeuRS), which require editing function to remove mis-activated amino acids. In the cytoplasm of the human pathogen Candida albicans, the CUG codon is translated as both Ser and Leu by a uniquely evolved CatRNASer(CAG). Its cytoplasmic LeuRS (CaLeuRS) is a crucial component for CUG codon ambiguity and harbors only one CUG codon at position 919. Comparison of the activity of CaLeuRS-Ser919 and CaLeuRS-Leu919 revealed yeast LeuRSs have a relaxed tRNA recognition capacity. We also studied the mis-activation and editing of non-cognate amino acids by CaLeuRS. Interestingly, we found that CaLeuRS is naturally deficient in tRNA-dependent pre-transfer editing for non-cognate norvaline while displaying a weak tRNA-dependent pre-transfer editing ...
Like the other amino acids used by cells, selenocysteine has a specialized tRNA. The primary and secondary structure of selenocysteine tRNA, tRNA(Sec), differ from those of standard tRNAs in several respects, most notably in having an 8-base (bacteria) or 9-base (eukaryotes) pair acceptor stem, a long variable region arm, and substitutions at several well-conserved base positions. The selenocysteine tRNAs are initially charged with serine by seryl-tRNA ligase, but the resulting Ser-tRNA(Sec) is not used for translation because it is not recognised by the normal translation factor (EF-Tu in bacteria, EF1alpha in eukaryotes). Rather, the tRNA-bound seryl residue is converted to a selenocysteyl-residue by the pyridoxal phosphate-containing enzyme selenocysteine synthase. Finally, the resulting Sec-tRNA(Sec) is specifically bound to an alternative translational elongation factor (SelB or mSelB) which delivers it in a targeted manner to the ribosomes translating mRNAs for selenoproteins. The ...
RelA is a ribosome associated multi-domain enzyme, which plays a crucial role in adaptation ofEscherichia coli to nutritional stress as such as amino acid deficiency. It detects the deficiency of aminoacids in the cell by monitoring whether a tRNA at the acceptor site (A-site) of the ribosome is chargedwith amino acid or not. When RelA detects uncharged, i.e. deacylated tRNA, it starts to producealarmone guanosine penta- or tetraphosphate, collectively referred to as (p)ppGpp. (p)ppGpp is aglobal metabolism regulator in bacteria. Increase in (p)ppGpp concentration alters crucial metabolicprocesses, such as DNA replication, gene expression, cell wall synthesis and translation. Thesechanges also include activation of different virulence factors and are proposed to drive formation of abacterial sub-population that is highly resilient to antibiotic treatment, the so-called persisters.. For a long time the molecular mechanism of RelAs activation by and interaction with the ribosomedeacylatedtRNA ...
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 ...
Puromycin is an aminonucleoside antibiotic, derived from the Streptomyces alboniger bacterium,[1] that causes premature chain termination during translation taking place in the ribosome. Part of the molecule resembles the 3 end of the aminoacylated tRNA. It enters the A site and transfers to the growing chain, causing the formation of a puromycylated nascent chain and premature chain release.[2] The exact mechanism of action is unknown at this time but the 3 position contains an amide linkage instead of the normal ester linkage of tRNA. That makes the molecule much more resistant to hydrolysis and stops the ribosome. Puromycin is selective for either prokaryotes or eukaryotes. Also of note, puromycin is critical in mRNA display. In this reaction, a puromycin molecule is chemically attached to the end of an mRNA template, which is then translated into protein. The puromycin can then form a covalent link to the growing peptide chain allowing the mRNA to be physically linked to its translational ...
