    The novel decapping enzyme ALPH1

    Trypanosomes have a highly unusual mRNA decapping enzyme: ALPH1. In contrast to all other known decapping enzymes, ALPH1 is not a nudix domain protein, but an ApaH like phosphatase. The aim of my PhD thesis is the biochemical characterisation of this unique mRNA decapping enzyme. More details can be found here.
