The Fiber Disease

... Individual tRNAs are charged with specific amino acids by enzymes known as aminoacyl tRNA synthetases which have high specificity for both their cognate amino acids and tRNAs. The high specificity of these enzymes is a major reasons why the fidelity of protein translation is maintained. There ...

... to T as well? Maybe there is a "secondary signal" after the receptor:ligand complex-action, in the same way like when T-cell making a cognate interaction with APC, for instance, that beside T-receptor the cell needs certain marker to have a fix binding? Or something else? Do I miss ...

... size and shape. We report the three-dimensional design of tectoRNAs incorporating modular 4-way junction (4WJ) motifs, hairpin loops and their cognate loop–receptors to create extended, programmable interaction interfaces. Specific and directional RNA–RNA interactions at these interfaces enable ...
