Recent advances in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
Antwerp, Belgium. In Curr Opin Neurol, 2014
RECENT FINDINGS: Several new Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease-causing genes have been recently identified, further enlarging the genetic diversity and phenotypic variability, including: SBF1, DHTKD1, TFG, MARS, HARS, HINT1, TRIM1, AIFM1, PDK3 and GNB4.
Architecture and metamorphosis.
Jupiter, United States. In Top Curr Chem, 2013
The human MSC consists of nine aaRSs (LysRS, ArgRS, GlnRS, AspRS, MetRS, IleRS, LeuRS, GluProRS, and bifunctional aaRs) and three scaffold proteins (AIMP1/p43, AIMP2/p38, and AIMP3/p18), and has a molecular weight of 1.5 million Dalton.
Non-catalytic regulation of gene expression by aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases.
Cleveland, United States. In Top Curr Chem, 2013
In the second section on translational control, we recapitulate the roles of GluProRS in translation repression at the initiation step, auto-inhibition of E. coli thrS mRNA translation by ThrRS, and global translational arrest by phosphorylated human MetRS.
Partition of tRNA synthetases into two classes based on mutually exclusive sets of sequence motifs.
Strasbourg, France. In Nature, 1990
Out of the 18 known aaRS, only 9 referred to as class I synthetases (GlnRS, TyrRS, MetRS, GluRS, ArgRS, ValRS, IleRS, LeuRS, TrpRS), display two short common consensus sequences ('HIGH' and 'KMSKS') which indicate, as observed in three crystal structures, the presence of a structural domain (the Rossman fold) that binds ATP.
