Systematic name tK(CUU)G2
Gene name
Feature type tRNA
Coordinates Chr VII:185786..185714
Primary SGDID S000006622

Description of tK(CUU)G2: Lysine tRNA (tRNA-Lys), predicted by tRNAscan-SE analysis; a small portion is imported into mitochondria via interaction with mt lysyl-tRNA synthetase Msk1p and is necessary to decode AAG codons at high temperature, when base modification of mt-encoded tRNA-Lys is reduced[1][2][3]
