The nucleotide sequence of one of the two major lysine transfer RNA's from bakers' yeast has been determined. Its structure is compared to that of a lysine tRNA from a haploid yeast. A total of 21 nucleotides differ in the two molecules. Only the T-ψ-C-G (thymidine-pseudouridine-cytidine-guanosine) loop and its supporting stem are identical.
