1) Absolute and relative quantification of RNA modifications via biosynthetic isotopomers.[8]

2) Partial methylation at Am100 in 18S rRNA of bakerĀ“s yeast shows ribosome heterogeneity on the level of eukaryotic rRNA modification. Plos One [9]

3) Identification of novel methyltransferases, Bmt5 and Bmt6, responsible for the m3U methylations of 25S rRNA in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.[10]

4) Yeast Nop2 and Rcm1 methylate C2870 and C2278 of the 25S rRNA, respectively.[11]

5) Identification of a novel methyltransferase, Bmt2, responsible for the N-1-methyl-adenosine base modification of 25S rRNA in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.[12]

6) Yeast Rrp8p, a novel methyltransferase responsible for m1A 645 base modification of 25S rRNA.[13]

7) Association of P2X7 receptor +1513 (A-->C) polymorphism with tuberculosis in a Punjabi population.[14]
