Shen ZH and Fox TD (1989) Substitution of an invariant nucleotide at the base of the highly conserved '530-loop' of 15S rRNA causes suppression of yeast mitochondrial ochre mutations. Nucleic Acids Res 17(12):4535-9
Abstract: We have determined the nucleotide sequence alteration in the 15S rRNA gene of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain carrying the previously described mitochondrial ochre suppressor, MSUI. The suppressor contains an A residue at position 633 of the yeast mitochondrial sequence, in place of the wild-type G. This position, located in the highly conserved region forming the stem of the '530-loop', corresponds to G517 of the Escherichia coli 16S rRNA and is occupied by G in all other known small rRNA sequences. This finding strongly supports the previous conclusions of others that the 530-loop region plays an important role in enhancing translational accuracy.
