Abstract:A ribonuclease T1 homologue, ribonuclease Ms (RNase Ms) from Aspergillus saitoi, has been crystallized as a complex with a substrate analogue GfpC where the 2'-hydroxyl (2'-OH) group of guanosine in guanylyl-3',5'-cytidine (GpC) is replaced by the 2'-fluorine (2'-F) atom to prevent transesterification. The crystal structure of the complex was solved at 1.8-A resolution to a final R-factor of 0.204. The role of His92 (RNase T1 numbering) as the general acid catalyst was confirmed. Of the two alternative candida… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
