Abstract

High resolution crystal structures of the ribosome provide fascinating insights into perhaps the most sophisticated machine of a cell. Yet, this translational apparatus must have developed from a much more primitive structure. Throughout the evolution of this apparatus, tRNAs have been, and still are, key players in the translation process.
