tK(CUU)G1 Summary Help

Systematic Name tK(CUU)G1
Feature Type tRNA
Description Lysine tRNA (tRNA-Lys), predicted by tRNAscan-SE analysis; a small portion is imported into mitochondria via interaction with mt lysyl-tRNA synthetase Msk1p and is necessary to decode AAG codons at high temperature, when base modification of mt-encoded tRNA-Lys is reduced (1, 2, 3)
