Purification and subunit structure studies of human placental threonyl-tRNA synthetase.


Human threonyl-tRNA synthetase has been purified from full-term placenta over 5000-fold with a 13% overall yield by a combination of affinity chromatographic methods and conventional procedures. The product was apparently homogeneous by the criterion of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The purified enzyme catalyzed the… (More)
