TRNA 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridylate methyltransferase

TRMU, MTO2, Mtu1, mitochondrial 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridylate-methyltransferase
This gene is a member of the trmU family. It encodes a mitochondria-specific tRNA-modifying enzyme that is required for the 2-thio modification of 5-taurinomethyl-2-thiouridine tRNA-Lys on the wobble position of the anticodon. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

The ROS-sensitive microRNA-9/9* controls the expression of mitochondrial tRNA-modifying enzymes and is involved in the molecular mechanism of MELAS syndrome.
Armengod et al., Valencia, Spain. In Hum Mol Genet, 2015
We demonstrated that oxidative stress mediates an NFkB-dependent induction of microRNA-9/9*, which acts as a post-transcriptional negative regulator of the mt-tRNA-modification enzymes GTPBP3, MTO1 and TRMU.

Xie et al., Changsha, China. In Genet Test Mol Biomarkers, 2015
Subsequencing for the coding region of the GJB2 gene in the samples without the GJB2 hotspot mutations as well as subsequencing for the exon 1 of the TRMU gene in those samples with the mtDNA hotspot mutations was performed by Sanger sequencing.

Sawin et al., Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Nat Commun, 2014
Here we show that the Mto1/2 complex disassembles during mitosis, coincident with hyperphosphorylation of Mto2 protein.

Yan et al., Hangzhou, China. In Plos One, 2014
MTO1, together with MSS1 and MTO2, is a gene involved in the pathway of encoding a mitochondria-specific RNA-modifying enzyme related to the post-transcriptional modification of mitochondrial tRNAs.
Hepatic Copper Accumulation: A Novel Feature in Transient Infantile Liver Failure Due to TRMU Mutations?
Coman et al., Brisbane, Australia. In Jimd Rep, 2014
Recently pathogenic mutations in tRNA 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridylate methyltransferase (TRMU) gene (OMIM 610230) have been demonstrated to cause transient infantile liver failure (OMIM 613070).
Use of whole-exome sequencing to determine the genetic basis of multiple mitochondrial respiratory chain complex deficiencies.
Chinnery et al., Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. In Jama, 2014
However, atypical clinical features were present in some patients, including normal liver function and Leigh syndrome (subacute necrotizing encephalomyelopathy) seen in association with TRMU mutations and no cardiomyopathy with founder SCO2 mutations.
The effect of small molecules on nuclear-encoded translation diseases.
Saada et al., Jerusalem, Israel. In Biochimie, 2014
We evaluated the effect of seven small molecules with reported therapeutic potential in fibroblasts of four patients with combined respiratory complex disorders, each harboring a known mutation in a different nuclear-encoded component of the mitochondrial translation machinery: EFTs, GFM1, MRPS22 and TRMU.
Dynamics of cell shape inheritance in fission yeast.
Carazo-Salas et al., Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Plos One, 2013
Finally, we find that one of those pathways corresponds to the swc2-swr1-vps71 SWR1/SRCAP chromatin remodelling complex, which acts additively to the known mal3-tip1-mto1-mto2 microtubule and tea1-tea2-tea4-pom1 polarity machineries.
Altered 2-thiouridylation impairs mitochondrial translation in reversible infantile respiratory chain deficiency.
Horvath et al., Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. In Hum Mol Genet, 2013
However, reversible infantile respiratory chain deficiency (RIRCD), due to a homoplasmic mt-tRNA(Glu) mutation, and reversible infantile hepatopathy, due to tRNA 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridylate methyltransferase (TRMU) deficiency, stand out by showing spontaneous recovery, and provide the key to treatments of potential broader relevance.
