A highly conserved 3-methylhistidine modification is absent in yeast actin.

Abstract

To identify a protein histidine methyltransferase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we examined purified actin for the presence of the highly conserved 3-methylhistidine residue at position 73 by amino acid analysis of the whole protein and by amino acid analysis and mass spectrometry of the corresponding tryptic fragment. Surprisingly, we found that His-73 is… (More)
