Catalyzes the methylation of 5-carboxymethyl uridine to 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine at the wobble position of the anticodon loop in tRNA. Additionally we are shipping ALKBH8 Antibodies (41) and ALKBH8 Kits (1) and many more products for this protein.

Many euk (show ALKBH Proteins)aryotic tRNAs contain the wobble modification 5-m (show MCM5 Proteins)ethoxycarbonylmethyl-uridine (mcm5U). It is demonstrated that (R)- and (S)-5-methoxycarbonylhydroxymethyluridine (mchm5U), hydroxylated forms of mcm(5)U, are present in mammalian tRNA-Arg(UCG), and tRNA-Gly(UCC), respectively. It is shown that the hydroxylation reaction leading to the formation of (S)-mchm5U is catalyzed by the oxygenase (AlkB) domain of ALKBH8.
The methyltransferase domain of ALKBH8 is demonstrated to be a functional homologue of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Trm9 protein, mediating the last step in the formation of the wobble uridine modification 5-methoxycarbonylmethyl-uridine in tRNA. This modification is shown to be important for efficient selenoprotein synthesis. ALKBH8 knock-out mice are generated and described.
Data show that human AlkB (show ALKBH Proteins) homolog 8 (ABH8) catalyzes tRNA methylation to generate 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine (mcm(5 (show MCM5 Proteins))U) at the wobble position of certain tRNAs, a critical anticodon loop modification linked to DNA damage survival.
Findings indicate a role for ALKBH8 in urothelial carcinoma cell survival mediated by NOX-1 (show NOX1 Proteins)-dependent ROS (show ROS1 Proteins) signals, further suggesting therapeutic strategies in human bladder cancer by inducing JNK (show MAPK8 Proteins)/p38 (show CRK Proteins)/gammaH2AX (show H2AFX Proteins)-mediated cell death by silencing of ALKBH8.
Alkbh8 and tRNA modifications as central regulators of cellular oxidative stress responses in mammalian systems.
The AlkB (show ALKBH Proteins) domain of ALKBH8 specifically hydroxylates mcm(5 (show MCM5 Proteins))U into (S)-mchm(5)U in tRNA-Gly(UCC).
Data show that ALKBH8 is a tRNA methyltransferase required for the final step in the biogenesis of mcm5U.
Catalyzes the methylation of 5-carboxymethyl uridine to 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine at the wobble position of the anticodon loop in tRNA. Catalyzes the last step in the formation of 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine at the wobble position of the anticodon loop in target tRNA. Has a preference for tRNA(Arg) and tRNA(Glu), and does not bind tRNA(Lys). Required for normal survival after DNA damage. May inhibit apoptosis and promote cell survival and angiogenesis (By similarity).
