Five W synthases catalyze synthesis of these nine W ’s. Deletion of the gene for one W synthase, RluD, which directs synthesis of three closely clustered W ’s in the decoding site of the PTC, has a profound negative impact on cell growth. We describe the isolation, without ampli cation from a cloned coding element, of the triplesite modifying enzyme, RluD, the N-terminal sequence of which has been used to clone and express the corresponding gene, rluD. Unlike “expressed” RluD, which so far has not been shown to modify one (1911) of the three closely clustered http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png IUBMB Life Wiley
