ELAC1 Repairs tRNAs Cleaved during Ribosome-Associated Quality Control

Matthew C.J. Yip, Simonas Savickas, Steven P. Gygi, Sichen Shao
2020 Cell Reports  
Here, we show that ELAC1 is both necessary and sufficient to remove the 2',3'-cyclic phosphate on ANKZF1-cleaved tRNAs to permit CCA re-addition by TRNT1.  ...  Thus, optimal recycling of ANKZF1-cleaved tRNAs in vertebrates is achieved through the duplication and specialization of a conserved tRNA biosynthesis enzyme.  ...  identify ELAC1 as a tRNA repair enzyme that is necessary and sufficient to remove 2 0 ,3 0 -cyclic phosphates from tRNAs cleaved by ANKZF1 on stalled ribosomes to permit 3 0 CCA re-addition and tRNA recycling  ...
