THE NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCE AND EVOLUTIONARY IMPLICATIONS OF ASPARTIC ACID TRANSFER-RNA FROM THE CHLOROPLAST OF EUGLENA GRACILIS

The nucleotide sequence of aspartic acid tRNA from the chloroplast of Euglena gracilis has been determined. In resembling prokaryotic tRNA, the sequence of the chloroplast tRNA('asp) represents additional evidence in support of the prokaryotic endosymbiotic theory of the origin of the chloroplast. The accuracy of this sequence determination has been buttressed by the independent use of two techniques, conventional angular mobility shift analysis and the recently developed rapid print-readout method. Further, these methods have been combined in a novel approach to support the proposed sequence. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 41-12, Section: B, page: 4380. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--The Florida State University, 1980.
