Pseudouridine modification in the tRNA(Tyr) anticodon is dependent on the presence, but independent of the size and sequence, of the intron in eucaryotic tRNA(Tyr) genes.


In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, pseudouridine formation in the middle position of the tRNA(Tyr) anticodon (psi 35) is dependent on the presence of the intron in the tRNA(Tyr) gene (Johnson and Abelson, Nature 302:681-687, 1983). Drosophila melanogaster tRNA(Tyr) genes contain introns of three size classes: 20 or 21 base pairs (bp) (six genes), 48 bp (one gene… (More)
