Researchers led by Drs. Shigeyuki Yokoyama and Tatsuo Yanagisawa revealed the translation elongation factor P (EF-P) and the Arg residue at position 32 are constituent elements of the cell viability of a human pathogen, Neisseria meningitides.
Researchers led by Drs. Shigeyuki Yokoyama and Takuhiro Ito have successfully determined the structure of the eIF2B and unveiled its structural framework for the eIF2B associated mechanism of the pathogenesis of vanishing white matter (VWM) or childhood ataxia with central nervous system hypomyelination (CACH).
Researchers led by Drs. Shigeyuki Yokoyama and Shun-ichi Sekine have shown that the conversion between the tight and ratcheted forms could be the general basis for the regulation of RNAP functions in all cellular multisubunit RNAPs.
Researchers led by Dr. Shigeyuki Yokoyama have determined the crystal structure of the Sec synthase, SelA, responsible for the Ser-to-Sec conversion in bacteria. They determined the structures of SelA alone and in a complex with tRNASec.
