6) [47, 161]. Significant aaRS classspecific differences exist within this overall framework as described below. 3 Mechanisms of Pre-transfer Editing The existence of pre-transfer editing was first inferred from early pre-steady state kinetics experiments on IleRS, in which an observed transient accumulation of noncognate Val-tRNAIle was much smaller than expected if the sole pathway were the formation and subsequent hydrolysis of this species [8]. This suggested that hydrolysis of misactivated Val-AMP could account for the observed editing.

Gruic-Sovulj in the synthetic active site. The reaction by SerRS proceeds by simple hydrolysis of noncognate mixed anhydrides, and so follows the same pre-transfer editing mechanism found in the other editing aaRS. Yeast SerRS activates threonine, cysteine, and serine hydroxamate; interestingly, the latter amino acid analogue stimulates tenfold more AMP production than do the others [163]. However, MetRS and class II LysRS follow distinct pathways. MetRS possesses a tRNA-independent pathway in which it clears misactivated homocysteine by intramolecular cyclization to form homocysteine thiolactone [12, 13, 170].
