The human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus is an asparagine prototroph despite its genome not encoding an asparagine synthetase. S. aureus does use an asparaginyl-tRNA synthetase (AsnRS) to directly ligate asparagine to tRNA(Asn). The S. aureus genome also codes for one aspartyl-tRNA synthetase (AspRS). Here we demonstrate the lone S. aureus aspartyl-tRNA(More)
