Keyword - tRNA processing (KW-0819)


Protein involved in the processing of the primary tRNA transcript to yield a functional tRNA. Transcription of tRNA genes results in a large precursor molecule which may even contain sequences for several tRNA molecules. This primary transcript is subsequently processed by cleavage and by modification of the appropriate bases.
