Characterization of a Mycoplasma hominis gene encoding lysyl-tRNA synthetase (LysRS).

Abstract

The gene encoding lysyl-tRNA synthetase (lysS) in Mycoplasma hominis was cloned and sequenced. The gene was found to have an open reading frame of 1466 bp encoding a polypeptide with a predicted molecular mass of 57 kDa. The amino acid sequence showed 44.3% and 43.7% identity to the Escherichia coli lysyl-tRNA synthetases, encoded by lysS and lysU. Only one… (More)
