Formation of a Ternary Complex between Formylatable Yeast Met-tRNA, GTP and Binding Factor T of Yeast and of E. coli

Article metrics

Abstract

Both formylatable and non-formylatable met-tRNAs of yeast bind to the elongation factor T which transfers aminoacyl-tRNA to the ribosome. This means that yeast cannot use the same mechanism as E. coli for distinguishing initiator tRNA from other aminoacyl tRNAs.
