Abstract:

Different leucine sRNAs in E. coli are separable by countercurrent distribution. When these sRNAs are used as donors of labeled leucine during the synthesis of rabbit hemoglobin, in vitro, they distribute leucine differently into various peptides of the alpha-chain. One of the sRNAs introduces leucine only into a single position. The results indicate that there are at least two distinct codons for leucine in the amino acid code. Author
