Editing does not exist for mammalian selenocysteine tRNAs.


It has been reported that selenocysteine tRNA from bovine liver is completely edited to two isoacceptor species, called tRNA([Ser]SecNCA) and tRNA([Ser]SecCmCa), which differ from the gene sequence. We used direct tRNA sequencing, mobility shift analyses, primer extension, restriction enzyme digestion and single strand conformational polymorphism (SSCP… (More)
