9:30 INVESTIGATING TRNA CHANNELING BY AMINOACYL-TRNA SYNTHETASES
AND ELONGATION FACTOR TU
In these 36 reports, contributors describe their most recent research in aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases
, the point in gene expression in which the genetic code is first defined.
Furthermore, the full complement of aminoacyl-tRNAs necessary for translation is not entirely formed by the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases
To illustrate the power of matching against secondary structure predictions, we present a novel proposed protein alignment, found using this system, for the protein class of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases
. The proposed alignment agrees with the few existing alignments based on primary sequence similarities (or homologies) where such are known, and predicts novel alignments for some enzymes having no known primary sequence similarities.

The existence of a complex of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases
in plants is still in question.
