Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Transfer RNA is extensively modified by the actions of a variety of enzymes. The radical S-adenosyl-L-methionine enzyme TYW1 modifies tRNAPhe forming the characteristic tricyclic ring via the condensation of carbons 2 and 3 of pyruvate. This chapter details methods that are required for studies of TYW1.
