This is your chance to make annotations OR challenge other team's annotations. You may also DEFEND or suggest improvements to your own annotations IF they have been challenged. Please note, although we ENCOURAGE challenges, an excess of identical challenges that do not appear to be applicable to the annotation or well thought out will be considered spam and ignored.

DAG for GO:0002927id: GO:0002927

name: archaeosine-tRNA biosynthetic process
namespace: biological_process
def: "The chemical reactions and pathways involved in the biosynthesis of archaeosine, an archaea-specific modified base found at position 15 in the D-loop of certain archaeal tRNAs." [GOC:hjd, UniPathway:UPA00393]
comment: Archaeosine (7-formamidino-7-deazaguanosine) is a structural variant of the hypermodified nucleoside 7-deazaguanosine. The biosynthesis pathway starts with archaeosine tRNA-guanine transglycosylase (ArcTGT) which catalyzes the exchange of guanine at position 15 in the D-loop of archaeal tRNAs with a free 7-cyano-7-deazaguanine.
