Levinger, L., Giegé, R., Florentz, C. 2003. Pathology-related substitutions in human mitochondrial tRNAIle reduce precursor 3' end processing efficiency in vitro. Nucleic Acids Res. 31:1904-1912.
This publication in Nucleic Acids Research is the first of a series based on Dr. Levinger's sabbatical with Catherine Florentz and Richard Giege at the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology in Strasbourg, France from 2001-2002. The general topic of the sabbatical research was precursor tRNA 3' end processing and mitochondrially transmitted human diseases. The research was supported by a fellowship from the NIH.
