Phylogenetic-comparative analysis of the eukaryal ribonuclease P RNA.
Ribonuclease P (RNase P) is the ribonucleoprotein enzyme that cleaves 5'-leader sequences from precursor-tRNAs. Bacterial and eukaryal RNase P RNAs differ fundamentally in that the former, but notExpand

Phylogeny of rapidly growing members of the genus Mycobacterium.
The 16S rRNAs from nine rapidly growing Mycobacterium species were partially sequenced by using the dideoxynucleotide-terminated, primer extension method with cDNA generated by reverse transcriptase.Expand

Further perspective on the catalytic core and secondary structure of ribonuclease P RNA.
Phylogenetic comparative analyses of RNase P RNA-encoding gene sequences from Chlorobium limicola, Chlorobium tepidum, Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, and Flavobacterium yabuuchiae refine the secondaryExpand

Comparative structure analysis of vertebrate ribonuclease P RNA.
Ribonuclease P cleaves 5'-precursor sequences from pre-tRNAs. All cellular RNase P holoenzymes contain homologous RNA elements; the eucaryal RNase P RNA, in contrast to the bacterial RNA, isExpand

Differentiation of Haemobartonella canis and Mycoplasma haemofelis on the basis of comparative analysis of gene sequences.
OBJECTIVE To determine whether Haemobartonella canis and Mycoplasma haemofelis (formerly known as H felis [large form]) can be differentiated by use of comparative analysis of gene sequences. Expand

Complete nucleotide sequence of the Mycobacterium leprae 23 S and 5 S rRNA genes plus flanking regions and their potential in designing diagnostic oligonucleotide probes
The complete nucleotide sequences of the Mycobacterium leprae 23 S and 5 S rRNA genes and their flanking regions are presented. As compared to other eubacterial homologous molecules the 23 S rDNAExpand

A novel approach for monitoring genetically engineered microorganisms by using artificial, stable RNAs.
Further improvements in technology for efficient monitoring of genetically engineered microorganisms (GEMs) in the environment are needed. Technology for monitoring rRNA is well established but hasExpand

Efficient cleavage of pre-tRNAs by E. coli RNAse P RNA requires the 2'-hydroxyl of the ribose at the cleavage site.
RNAse P cleaves pre-tRNAs to liberate 5'-flanks and 5'-matured, 5'-phosphorylated tRNAs. It is not evident if the 2'-hydroxyls of the ribose moieties in the substrate are involved in the reaction. ToExpand
