The methylation of abnormal L-isoaspartyl residues by protein L-isoaspartate (D-aspartate) O-methyltransferase (EC 2.1.1.77) can lead to their conversion to L-aspartyl residues. For polypeptides damaged by spontaneous reactions that generate L-isoaspartyl residues, these steps represent a protein repair pathway that can limit the accumulation of potentially(More)
Human chromosome 12 contains more than 1,400 coding genes and 487 loci that have been directly implicated in human disease. The q arm of chromosome 12 contains one of the largest blocks of linkage disequilibrium found in the human genome. Here we present the finished sequence of human chromosome 12, which has been finished to high quality and spans(More)
