Discovered Genetic Code Controls Bacterial Survival



This resource article/study by Anne Trafton at M.I.T. is from the website (2016) for educational and research purposes only.

Excerpt: The authors present an impressive example of the new, emerging deep biology of transfer RNAs, which translate the genetic code in all living organisms to create proteins,” says Paul Schimmel, a professor of cell and molecular biology at the Scripps Research Institute, who was not involved in the research. The researchers also showed that when they swapped different threonine codons into the genomic locations where ACG is usually found, the bacterial cells failed to enter a dormant state when oxygen levels were diminished.
