Binding stoichiometry of tRNATrp and tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase from bovine pancreas under pH conditions of maximum activity. Analysis by ultracentrifugation, fluorescence quenching and chemical modification.

Abstract

The binding stoichiometry of tRNATrp and tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase (EC 6.1.1.2) from beef is examined by three approaches, under pH conditions of maximum activity (pH 8.0). (1) Analytical ultracentrifugation evidences the binding of a single mol of tRNATrp in a 2.5-10 microM concentration range. (2) tRNATrp quenches the fluorescence of the enzyme. The… (More)
