Red queen dynamics of protein translation.

Abstract

We explore adaptive theories for the diversity of translational binding based on the genetic code viewed as a primitive mechanism of resistance. Modifying the set of codons bound by tRNA anticodon molecules or changing the specificity of binding, reduces the replication rate of translational parasites such as viruses. Increased translational efficiency of… (More)
