tRNA isolated from Image Image , grown in the presence of radioactive sulfur was analyzed for the occurrence of thionucleotides. The analysis revealed the presence of at least five thionucleotides, of which three were identified as 4-thiouridylic acid, 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridylic acid and 2-thiocytidylic acid. Iodine-oxidation affected the acceptor ability of several amino acid specific tRNAs, those for lysine and serine being affected most. The tRNA of Image Image differs from that of Image . Image both in the number and the relative proportion of thionucleotides.
