Technical Data
Molecular Biology Storage: RTShipping: RT
An isomer of the nucleoside uridine found in all species and in many classes of RNA except mRNA. It is formed by enzymes called synthases, which post-transcriptionally isomerize specific uridine residues in RNA in a process termed pseudouridylation. Studies suggest that -Pseudouridine reduces radiation-induced chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes.
