We are no longer accepting submissions to this journal as we have now merged in scope with newly re-launched BMC Molecular and Cell Biology.
Are you holding on to data that you've not yet published? You can get recognition for it by publishing a data note in BMC Research Notes.
The conserved residues of Dnmt3a, R200 and R202, are essential for methylation activity. They are involved in positioning of the flipped target base and in creating and stabilizing of the transient covalent intermediate of the methylation reaction.
Aims and scope
BMC Biochemistry is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of biochemical processes, including the structure, function and dynamics of metabolic pathways, supramolecular complexes, enzymes, proteins, nucleic acids and small molecular components of organelles, cells and tissues.
