Evolution of acceptor stem tRNA recognition by class II prolyl-tRNA synthetase

Abstract

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (AARS) are an essential family of enzymes that catalyze the attachment of amino acids to specific tRNAs during translation. Previously, we showed that base-specific recognition of the tRNA(Pro) acceptor stem is critical for recognition by Escherichia coli prolyl-tRNA synthetase (ProRS), but not for human ProRS. To further… (More)
