Yes, years ago (in Earth-years).
Knight and Landweber, Rhyme or reason: RNA-arginine interactions and the genetic code, Chemistry & Biology 1998.
|“Instead, the amino acid is attached via an ester bond to the 3? end of the stem. The anticodon sequence is further down the stem and is not involved.”|
Then why should the amino acid bind at some other place on the tRNA just because the anti codon will bind to it. There should be a connection or am I missing something.
I'm beginning to regret trying to explain this to him.
