    Pseudouridine synthases introduce the most common RNA modification and likely use the same catalytic mechanism. Besides a catalytic aspartate residue, the contributions of other residues for catalysis of pseudouridine ...
  • Coatham, Mackenzie L.; Brandon, Harland E.; Fischer, Jeffrey J.; Schummer, Tobias; Wieden, Hans-Joachim (Oxford University PressArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and BiochemistryUniversity of AlbertaUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    Using a combination of biochemical, structural probing and rapid kinetics techniques we reveal for the first time that the universally conserved translational GTPase (trGTPase) HflX binds to the E-site of the 70S ribosome ...
  • Akaho, Shotaro; Higuchi, Sho; Iwasaki, Taishi; Hino, Hideitsu; Tatsuno, Masami; Murata, Noboru (IOP Publishing, 2016)
    We propose a method to extract connectivity between neurons for extracellularly recorded multiple spike trains. The method removes pseudo-correlation caused by propagation of information along an indirect pathway, and ...
