Yeast phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase: symmetric behavior of the enzyme during activation of phenylalanine as shown by a rapid kinetic investigation.

Abstract

The adenylation of phenylalanine catalyzed by phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase was investigated in the absence of tRNA, by rapid kinetic measurements using 6-(p-toluidinyl)naphthalene-2-sulfonate (TNS) as a nonspecific fluorescent reporter group. It is shown that each protomer of the enzyme is able to catalyze independently the adenylation of phenylalanine by… (More)
