Abstract


Aminoacylation of transfer RNAs is a key step during translation. It is catalysed by the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) and requires the specific recognition of their cognate substrates, one or several tRNAs, ATP and the amino acid. Whereas the control of certain aaRS genes is well known in prokaryotes, little is known about the regulation of eukaryotic aaRS genes. Here, it is shown that expression of AspRS is regulated in yeast by a feedback mechanism that necessitates the binding of AspRS to its messenger RNA. This regulation leads to a synchronized expression of AspRS and tRNA(Asp). The correlation between AspRS expression and mRNA(AspRS) and tRNA(Asp) concentrations, as well as the presence of AspRS in the nucleus, suggests an original regulation mechanism. It is proposed that the surplus of AspRS, not sequestered by tRNA(Asp), is imported into the nucleus where it binds to mRNA(AspRS) and thus inhibits its accumulation.
