(Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie) This involves the DYW deaminase domain of what is referred to as the RNA editosome. The DYW domain alters messenger RNA nucleotides in chloroplasts and mitochondria and contains a zinc ion whose activity is controlled by a very unusual mechanism. The team has now described this mechanism in detail for the first time. Their study is considered a breakthrough in the field of plant molecular biology and has far-reaching implications for bioengineering.
