English Mitochondrial tRNA import is widespread in eukaryotes. Yet, the mechanism that determines its specificity is unknown. Previous <i>in vivo</i> experiments using the tRNAs<sup>Met</sup>, tRNA<sup>Ile</sup> and tRNA<sup>Lys</sup> have suggested that the T-stem nucleotide pair 51:63 is the main localization determinant of tRNAs in <i>Trypanosoma brucei</i>. In the cytosol-specific initiator... Show more…
