The mitochondrial genome of trypanosomes, unlike that of most other eukaryotes, does not appear to encode any tRNAs. Therefore, mitochondrial tRNAs must be either imported into the organelle or created through a novel mitochondrial process, such as RNA editing. Trypanosomal tRNA(Tyr), whose gene contains an 11-nucleotide intron, is present in both the cytosol and the mitochondrion and is encoded by a single-copy nuclear gene. By site-directed mutagenesis, point mutations were introduced into… CONTINUE READING
