Specific incorporation of kinetin into eukaryotic and prokaryotic transfer ribonucleic acid molecules.

Abstract

We show that kinetin, a non-natural product with strong cytokinin activity, is incorporated into prokaryotic and eukaryotic tRNAs in the exchange reaction catalysed by a putative tRNA-kinetin transglycosylase. We also show that kinetin is specifically incorporated into E. coli tRNA(Tyr) and most probably at position 37. To our knowledge, this is the first… (More)
