Evidence for a New Escherichia Coli Protein Resembling a lysyl-tRNA Synthetase

Gene. 1991 Dec 1;108(1):163-4. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(91)90503-4.


The amino acid sequence deduced from the nucleotide sequence of an open reading frame adjacent to the frdA gene of Escherichia coli shows 30.5% identity with the C terminus of Escherichia coli lysyl-tRNA synthetases. The three motifs characteristic of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases of class 2 are recognizable within this sequence.
