A potato mitochondrial isoleucine tRNA is coded for by a mitochondrial gene possessing a methionine anticodon.

Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of a potato mitochondrial tRNA(Ile) has been determined. This tRNA has a lysidine-like minor nucleotide in the first position of the anticodon (position 34). The corresponding mitochondrial gene has been cloned and sequenced. This gene has a CAT anticodon which corresponds to methionine. The C residue in the anticodon must therefore… (More)
