Show Summary Details


Features unique to a transfer-RNA are recognized by the corresponding tRNA-synthetase. Keeping this in view we isolate the discriminating features of all archaeal tRNA. These are our identity elements. Further, we investigate tRNA-characteristics that delineate the different orders of Archaea.

Keywords: Archaea; identity elements; AARS; tRNA secondary structure; tRNA tertiary structure; canonical introns; non-canonical introns; bulge–helix–bulge (BHB motif)
