Abstract

A soluble enzyme which catalyzes the transfer of leucine and phenylalanine from tRNA to protein has been partially purified from Escherichia coli. No activity is observed with other amino acyl tRNAs. The transfer reaction does not require magnesium ions but does require a monovalent cation and an acceptor protein such as bovine serum albumin.
