Interactions of 5-fluorouracil-substituted Escherichia coli tRNAVal with its cognate synthetase have been investigated by fluorine-19 nuclear magnetic resonance. Valyl-tRNA synthetase (VRS) (EC 6.1.1.9), purified to homogeneity from an overproducing strain of E. coli, differs somewhat from VRS previously isolated from E. coli K12. Its amino acid composition and N-terminal sequence agree well with results derived from the sequence of the VRS gene [Heck, J.D., & Hatfield, G.W. (1988) J. Biol… CONTINUE READING
