Investigation of the functional synergy and involvement of different tRNA modifications in translational control
Transfer RNAs are essential adapter molecules employed in the translational process and are highly modified all over their structure. Specific modification of the four canonical ribonucleotides (A, U, C, G) is accomplished by various proteins and/or protein complexes, ranging from simple isomerisations (e.g. Ψ) and methylations (e.g. m5C) up to complex chemical structures (e.g. mcm5s2U, ct6A). The functions of tRNA modifications are linked to the specific position and may influence translation by supporting the native ...
