Miller DL, et al. (1979) Sequence analysis of two yeast mitochondrial DNA fragments containing the genes for tRNA Ser UCR and tRNA Phe UUY. J Biol Chem 254(22):11735-40
Abstract: Two restriction enzyme fragments containing yeast mitochondrial tRNA genes have been characterized by DNA sequence analysis. One of these fragments is 320 base pairs long and contains a tRNA Ser gene. The corresponding tRNA SER was isolated from yeast mitochondria and its nucleotide sequence also was determined. This mitochondrial tRNA is 90 nucleotides in length, has a G + C content of 38%, and has UGA as the anticodon. A portion of a 680-base-pair DNA fragment containing a tRNA Phe gene was also sequenced. The portion of this gene which codes for the mature tRNA is 75 base pairs in length, has a G + C content of 33%, and contains the anticodon GAA. Neither gene contains an intervening sequence or codes for the 3' CCA terminus. Both are surrounded by regions of more than 90% A + T. The significance of these sequences is discussed.
