Bypassing rRNA methylation by RsmA/Dim1during ribosome maturation in the hyperthermophilic archaeonNanoarchaeum equitans

Seistrup, Kenneth H. ; Rose, Simon ; Birkedal, Ulf ; Nielsen, Henrik ; Huber, Harald ; Douthwaite, Stephen


In all free-living organisms a late-stage checkpoint in the biogenesis of the small ribosomal subunit involves rRNA modification by an RsmA/Dim1 methyltransferase. The hyperthermophilic archaeon Nanoarchaeum equitans, whose existence is confined to the surface of a second archaeon, Ignic-occus hospitalis, lacks an RsmA/Dim1 homolog. We demonstrate here that the I. hospitalis host possesses the ...
