We have sequenced a lysine tRNA from mosquito mitochondria that has the anticodon CUU. The preponderance of AAA lysine codons in insect mitochondrial genes, the parsimonious organization of the genomes, and the fact that this tRNA is a major component of the mosquito mitochondrial tRNA complement, lead us to suggest that the CUU anticodon recognizes AAC and AAA codons.
