The nucleotide sequences of two valine tRNA's of Drosophila melanogaster are the following: tRNAVal3a, (sequence in text) tRNAVal3b, (sequence in text) tRNAVal3a shows greater similarity to prokaryotic and eukaryotic organelle tRNAVal's than does tRNAVal3b.
Transfer RNALyS was isolated and purified from Drosophila melanogaster. It was iodinated in vitro with sodium [il25liodide and hybridized in situ to the poly-tene salivary gland chromosomes from Drosophila. Auto-radiographs exposed three to four weeks allowed the localization of this tRNA to the right arm of chromosome 2 between bands 48F and 49A. In… (More)
