Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, a group of enzymes catalyzing aminoacyl-tRNA formation, may possess inherent editing activity to clear mistakes arising through the selection of non-cognate amino acid. It is generally assumed that both editing substrates, non-cognate aminoacyl-adenylate and misacylated tRNA, are hydrolyzed at the same editing domain, distant(More)
Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRS) are essential enzymes catalyzing the formation of aminoacyl-tRNAs, the immediate precursors for encoded peptides in ribosomal protein synthesis. Previous studies have suggested a link between tRNA aminoacylation and high-molecular-weight cellular complexes such as the cytoskeleton or ribosomes. However, the structural basis(More)
