Modomics - A Database of RNA Modifications


NameMyoclonus epilepsy, ragged-red fibers (MERRF) (A:m1A)
DescriptionMissing m1A modification on mitochondrial tRNA at the 58 position is associated with the MERRF disease. m1A58 provides a positive charge on tRNA tertiary structure that affect the binding of elongation factor which delivers tRNA to ribosome.
