PhD Oral Defense: In-Silico Structural and Functional Analysis of Trypanosoma brucei RNA Editing Ligases and their Interaction with their Binding Partner Proteins
PhD Oral Defense of Alireza Darissi Shaneh, Institute of Parasitology
RNA editing is a post-transcriptional modification in which a base is substituted by another one or inserted or deleted. In trypanosomatids, RNA editing is carried out by uridine insertion or deletion. A multiprotein complex, the editosome, trims the mitochondrial mRNA transcripts, and it consists of twenty know proteins out of which kinetoplastid RNA editing ligases 1 and 2 (KREL1 and KREL2) were subjects of this study.
