CDC64 encodes cytoplasmic alanyl-tRNA synthetase, Ala1p, of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The cdc64-1 mutation causes G(1) arrest in Saccharomyces cerevisiae corresponding to a type II Start phenotype. We report that CDC64 encodes Ala1p, an alanyl-tRNA synthetase. Thus, cdc64-1 might affect charging of tRNA(Ala) and thereby initiation of cell division.
