The mitochondria of yeast,1 Neurospora,2 and Tetrahymena3 have been shown to contain transfer RNA (tRNA). Barnett et al.4 have found, in addition, that Neurospora mitochondria contain 15 aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, at least three of which acylate only mitochondrial tRNA. The purpose of this communication is twofold. First we will present evidence showing that, as with eukaryotic microbial systems, the mitochondria of mammalian cells contain species of tRNA which are distinct from those of the… CONTINUE READING
