Sleep has been identified as a state that optimizes the consolidation of newly acquired information in memory. Straight memory deficits and sleep disturbances are well-known in patients with schizophrenia. This study tested the hypothesis that patients with schizophrenia have a deficit in procedural and declarative memory consolidation after a short midday(More)
Sequence-specific interactions between aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases and their cognate tRNAs both ensure accurate RNA recognition and prevent the binding of noncognate substrates. Here we show for Escherichia coli glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase (GlnRS; EC 6.1.1.18) that the accuracy of tRNA recognition also determines the efficiency of cognate amino acid(More)
Tryptophan auxotrophs of Escherichia coli in which mutations were mapped to the trpS locus (encoding tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase) have been previously isolated. We have investigated the tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase (TrpRS) purified from six auxotrophic strains for changes in amino acid activation and aminoacylation. Steady-state kinetic analyses show that(More)
Sequence-specific interactions between aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases and their cognate tRNAs ensure both accurate RNA recognition and the efficient catalysis of aminoacylation. The effects of tRNA(Trp)variants on the aminoacylation reaction catalyzed by wild-type Escherichia coli tryptophanyl-tRNA synthe-tase (TrpRS) have now been investigated by stopped-flow(More)
The integration of genetic and biochemical approaches to study the crystal structure of the glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase (GlnRS):tRNA(Gln):ATP complex has elucidated the mechanism by which GlnRS selects its cognate tRNA for aminoacylation. Three principal types of interaction have been identified: interaction with specific bases in the cognate tRNA, rejection(More)
The effects of genotype and sex on the most important factors for technological meat quality were analyzed. In the experiment 63 gilts and 57 barrows of three different boar genotypes (44, 54 and 74) were included. Slaughter was carried out in two groups, the first was about 100 kg and the second group was about 125 kg of live weight. After the slaughter(More)
