By purifying mutant mitochondrial tRNAs, we were able to ascertain that post-transcriptional modification at the anticodon wobble uridine is absent in tRNALys with the 8344 MERRF mutation and in tRNALeu(UUR) with either the 3243 or 3271 MELAS mutation. Both the MERRF and MELAS mutant tRNAs substantially lost their translational ability, the extent of the loss in each mutant corresponding to the reduction in actual mitochondrial translational activity. Lack of the wobble modification deprived mutant tRNALys of interaction with the cognate codons. These features indicate that the modification defect plays a primary role in the molecular pathophysiology of these mitochondrial diseases.
