In vivo repair of the 3'terminus of transfer RNA injected into amphibian oocytes.


Yeast transfer RNA specific for phenylalanine has been treated chemically to remove either one or two nucleotides of its 3' terminus and has been injected into Xenopus laevis oocytes to test whether this RNA can be repaired in vivo. The results obtained showed that oocytes could aminoacylate and thus repair tRNAPhe that has lost both its terminal adenosine… (More)
