Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 tRNA: tRNAargQ



Gene: argQ Accession Numbers: EG30013 (EcoCyc), b2691, ECK2686

Synonyms: argVdelta

Superclasses: tRNAarg

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Summary:
tRNA(argQ) is one of seven arginine tRNAs.

tRNAs are the adapters that allow synthesis of proteins from mRNAs. Each tRNA carries a specific amino acid to the ribosome for protein synthesis. There, the tRNA recognizes an RNA codon with its own three-nucleotide anticodon, thus allowing synthesis of a specific peptide based on an mRNA template.

tRNAs are processed to their active, mature forms by RNA cleavage and by modification of their bases. RNA cleavage consists of removal of both 5' and 3' extensions in a multistep process involving many RNases [Morl01]. RNases taking part in tRNA processing include ribonuclease E, RNase BN, RNase D, ribonuclease II, and RNase T. tRNAs are also subject to a wide variety of base modifications catalyzed by proteins such as tRNA-dihydrouridine synthase A, tRNA(i6A37) synthase, isopentenyl-adenosine A37 tRNA methylthiolase, tRNA-specific 2-thiouridylase, fused 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine-forming methyltransferase and FAD-dependent demodification enzyme, tRNA-guanine transglycosylase, tRNA m7G46 methyltransferase, tRNA pseudouridine 13 synthase, tRNA pseudouridine 65 synthase, tRNA pseudouridine 55 synthase, tRNA pseudouridine synthase I, tRNA (Gm18) 2'-O-methyltransferase, and tRNA m5U54 methyltransferase.

Mature tRNAs are linked via a 3' CCA sequence to their cognate amino acid in an ATP-dependent fashion by the appropriate amino-acid-tRNA synthetase, as shown in the tRNA charging. Subsequently, these charged tRNAs interact with the ribosome and template mRNA to generate polypeptides. The discovery of the role of tRNA in protein synthesis is reviewed in detail in [Siekevitz81].
