Abstract

Interaction of the conserved CCA terminus of tRNA with rRNA in the peptidyl transferase P site has been studied by in vitro genetics. A watson-Crick G-C pair between G2252 in a conserved hairpin loop of 23S rRNA and C74 at the acceptor end of tRNA is required for proper functional interaction of the CCA end of tRNA with the ribosomal P site. These findings establish a direct role for 23S rRNA in protein synthesis.
