Detailed calculations of the conformational characteristics of a primitive decoding system are presented. A penta-nucleotide serves as the primitive tRNA (PIT) with a triplet of primitive anticodon (PAC) in a helical conformation. This molecular moiety has a cleft in the middle. An amino acid can comfortably nestle into the cleft. The conformation of this… CONTINUE READING
