Ribotoxins Kill Cells by Chopping off the Head of tRNAs

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


In this issue of Structure, Gucinski et al. (2019) have described structural and enzymatic characterizations of two tRNase ribotoxins. The study significantly advances our understanding on the evolution and the mode of action of a group of ribotoxins that cleave the accepting stem of tRNAs for cell killing.
