General description

Benzoyl cyanide is used to study the mechanism of reduction of benzoyl cyanide in acetonitrile, N,N-dimethylformamide and acetonitrile. It undergoes hydrolysis by Rhodococcus sp. CCZU10-1 to form benzoylformic acid.

Application

Reagent for selective acylation of amino compounds.

Translation termination in eukaryotes is mediated by release factors: eRF1, which is responsible for stop codon recognition and peptidyl-tRNA hydrolysis, and GTPase eRF3, which stimulates peptide release. Here, we have utilized ribose-specific probes to investigate accessibility of rRNA backbone in...
