@biohazard
lysine tRNA is encoded by the nuclear DNA, as opposed to all the others which are encoded in the mitochondrial genome. Also the two rRNA genes definitely need to come from the mitochondrial genome since they are very different (much smaller) than nuclear rRNAs.

Just showing that DNA is the template for alot more than just plain old mRNA, rRNA, and tRNA. But yes, I guess I got carried away.

Yeah, it always end up with some miRNA :? :roll:

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Thanks for the clarification. With rRNA that's basically what I also suspected, even though I didn't manage to find a confirmation for this when I quickly looked at it earlier. But what comes to lysine tRNA, that bit I did not know!
