8 tags and 0 profile in descriptionAmazing contribution by the Rabinowitz Lab! In cells, folate is the main carrier of one-carbon units for the biosynthesis of larger building blocks like nucleotides and amino acids. Miss-regulation of folate-related enzymes underlies numerous pathologies, yet our full understanding of how this occurs is still incomplete. This new paper reveals that a catalytically-defective mitochondrial folate enzyme known as SHMT2 fails to generate the one-carbon folate-based donor to methylate an important residue in tRNA (τm5U). In turn, absence of τm5U inhibits the synthesis of proteins needed for mitochondrial respiration. Overall, a beautiful example of the delicate regulation present in metabolic pathways!

9 tags and 0 profile in descriptionBrilliant new research by the MacMillan Lab highlights how photoredox catalysis can be put to use in chemical biological problems. By taking advantage of the distinct reduction potential of internal carboxylates (harder to oxidize) and C-terminal carboxylates (more readily oxidized), the group developed a chemo- and site-selective protein labeling method. Decarboxylation of a C-terminal carboxylate facilitated by a photo-excited flavin catalyst generates a reactive radical intermediate that can be conjugated to an olefin acceptor, thus generating a homogeneously labeled protein. This labeling platform is relatively high yielding, water compatible, and tolerant of the numerous functional groups found in proteins!
