  • Functional and comparative genomic studies have previously shown that the essential protein lysyl-tRNA synthetase (LysRS) exists in two unrelated forms. Most prokaryotes and all eukaryotes contain a class II LysRS, whereas most archaea and a few bacteria contain a less common class I LysRS. In bacteria the class I LysRS is only found in the alpha-proteobacteria and a scattering of other groups, including the spirochetes, while the class I protein is by far the most common form of LysRS in… CONTINUE READING
