In higher plants, one-third to one-half of the mitochondrial tRNAs are encoded in the nucleus and are imported into mitochondria. This process appears to be highly specific for some tRNAs, but the factors that interact with tRNAs before and/or during import, as well as the signals present on the tRNAs, still need to be identified. The rare experiments performed so far suggest that, besides the probable implication of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, at least one additional import factor and/or… CONTINUE READING
