Enzymatic formation of modified nucleosides in tRNA: dependence on tRNA architecture.
Information is still quite limited concerning the structural requirements in tRNA molecules for their post-transcriptional maturation by base and ribose modification enzymes. To address thisExpand

Identity elements for N2-dimethylation of guanosine-26 in yeast tRNAs.
N2,N2-dimethylguanosine (m2(2)G) is a characteristic nucleoside that is found in the bend between the dihydro-uridine (D) stem and the anticodon (AC) stem in over 80% of the eukaryotic tRNA speciesExpand

Expression of mitochondrial protein-coding genes in Tetrahymena pyriformis.
In the ciliate protozoon, Tetrahymena pyriformis, mitochondrial protein-coding genes are highly divergent in sequence, and in a number of cases they lack AUG initiation codons. We asked whether RNAExpand

Enzymatic formation of N2,N2-dimethylguanosine in eukaryotic tRNA: importance of the tRNA architecture.
In eukaryotic tRNA, guanosine at position 26 in the junction between the D-stem and the anticodon stem is mostly modified to N2,N2-dimethylguanosine (m2(2)G26). Here we review the availableExpand

Structural elements in yeast tRNAs required for homologous modification of guanosine-26 into dimethylguanosine-26 by the yeast Trm1 tRNA-modifying enzyme.
In eukaryotic tRNAs, guanosines in position 26 (G26), located at the junction between the D-stem and the anticodon stem of tRNA, are usually modified to N2,N2-dimethylguanosine (m2(2)G). Although G26Expand

Pleiotrophic effects of point mutations in yeast tRNA(Asp) on the base modification pattern.
The base-modification pattern has been studied in several synthetic variants of yeast tRNA(Asp) injected into Xenopus laevis oocytes. Certain point mutations in the D-stem and the variable loop ofExpand

Characterization of transcription and processing from plasmids that use polIII and a yeast tRNA gene as promoter to transcribe promoter-deficient downstream DNA.
Transfer RNA (tRNA) with mutations affecting the internal promoters and thereby causing them to be nontranscribable by polIII (exemplified, e.g., by nematode tDNAPro with large insertions between theExpand
