Synonyms for tRNA

RNA molecules present in the cell (in at least 20 varieties, each variety capable of combining with a specific amino acid) that attach the correct amino acid to the protein chain that is being synthesized at the ribosome of the cell (according to directions coded in the mRNA)

This study found 10 potential biomarkers (1,5-anhydroglucitol, [alpha]-hydroxyvaleric acid, galactose glucitol, phenylalanine, glutamic acid, L-isoleucine, phenylpropionic acid, Nacetylglycine, ornithine, and lysine) and six metabolic pathways (alanine, aspartate, and glutamate metabolism, arginine and proline metabolism, lysine degradation, phenylalanine metabolism, aminoacyl-tRNA biosynthesis, D-glutamine, and D-glutamate metabolism) can be used to discriminate infertile males with KYDS from healthy controls.
Based on our KEGG pathway analysis, the most enriched pathways corresponding to the differentially expressed lncRNAs were associated with lysosome, RNA transport, and aminoacyl-tRNA biosynthesis (Figure 2(b)) (Supplementary Table 7).

Phosphorylation of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases could play a role in the regulation of protein synthesis in a similar manner as insulin regulates muscle (Kimball et al., 1994).
The correct amino acid is attached to each tRNA species by specific enzymes called aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases.
The full-length protein containing the unnatural amino acid could be produced when the four-base codon is successfully decoded by the unnatural aminoacyl-tRNA having the corresponding four-base anticodon.
Protein synthesis relies on 20 canonical amino acids encoded accordingly to a genetic code, each codon being recognized by an aminoacyl-tRNA. The molecular basis of the genotype to phenotype correspondence relies on the conjunction of tRNAs and of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRS).
Aminoacyl-tRNA It catalyzes the esterification of a specific synthetase (AARS) amino acid or its precursor to one of all its compatible cognate tRNAs to form an aminoacyl- tRNA.
Aminoacyl-tRNA constitutes a family of RNA-binding proteins, that is, responsible for the correct translation of the genetic code by covalently linking the appropriate amino acid to the 3' end of the correct tRNA.
Separately, a 3-chlorotyrosinecharged tRNA containing a CUs anticodon, was prepared by a combination of chemical synthesis and enzymatic ligation, followed by aminoacylation of 3-chlorotyrosine using an aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase (Fig.
These viruses, because of their size, the complexity of their genome that harbors three genes for aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases described for the first time in a viral genome and four unique orphan genes, challenges the definition of viruses and even the definition of an organism (Raoult & Forterre 2008).
Therefore, one would expect to observe the impaired translation of an abundant mRNA species containing an excess of rare codons with low aminoacyl-tRNA levels.
