The effect of queuosine on tRNA structure and function.
TLDR
The queuosine modification of tRNA may have the potential to influence cellular growth and differentiation by codon bias-based regulation of protein synthesis for discrete mRNA transcripts.
Activation of transfer RNA-guanine ribosyltransferase by protein kinase C
TLDR
Results suggest that PKC-dependent phosphorylation of TGRase is tied to efficient enzymatic function and therefore control of the queuine modification of tRNA.
Production of peanut seed free of peanut stripe and peanut mottle viruses in Florida.
Peanut (Arachis hypogaea 1.) seed free of both peanut stripe (PStV) and peanut mottle (PMoV) potyviruses were harvested in 1986-1990 from virus-indexed, greenhouse-grown plants for field propagation.
Problems with interpretation of serological assays in a virus survey of orchid species from Puerto Rico, Ecuador, and Florida
TLDR
Results illustrate the need to utilize more than one diagnostic technique before discarding a valuable orchid plant, as several orchid plants gave ELISA reactions greater than three times the negative control with all the virus antisera tested.
Supplemental host range of Araujia mosaic virus, a potential biological control agent of moth plant in New Zealand
TLDR
Because ArjMV infected the three Araujia species causing stunting, this virus would significantly reduce flowering and seed production in these species, including the monarch butterfly, which is highly valued in New Zealand.
Determination of queuosine modification system deficiencies in cultured human cells.
TLDR
It was shown by direct measurements that the HxGC(3) cell line is completely lacking in queuosine-modified tRNA due to loss of functional TGRase, while the MCF-7 cell line has an inefficient queuine salvage mechanism resulting in a significant deficiency of queuOSine- modified tRNA.
