Abstract

The sequence isolated Ala Cys Gly Ile Asx Glx in a nonapeptide isolated from the tryptophanyl tRNA synthetase of Escherichia coli B is homologous to the sequence Ile Ala Cys Gly Phe Asx Asx in a decapeptide isolated from the tryptophanyl tRNA synthetase of human placenta. So far no homologies have been found between cysteine containing peptides of aminoacyl tRNA synthetases with different amino acid specificities.
