The aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases link tRNAs with their cognate amino acid. In some cases, their fidelity relies on hydrolytic editing that destroys incorrectly activated amino acids or mischarged tRNAs. We present structures of leucyl-tRNA synthetase complexed with analogs of the distinct pre- and posttransfer editing substrates. The editing active site binds(More)
We present a case report of a bifurcated aorto-iliac stent graft infection two years after implantation. The initial procedure of implantation as well as the patient's recovery was uneventful. Two years later the patient presented with a growing aneurysmal sac without a detectable endoleak and consequent rupture. Instead of graft explantation, we left the(More)
In an effort to further improve the hybridisation potential of anhydro-hexitol nucleoside analogues, the 1'-methoxyl and 3'-methoxyl substituents were introduced and evaluated for their antisense potential. In view of the selectivity of pairing with RNA, especially the introduction of a 3'-O-alkyl moiety deserves further study.
