We studied sodium-dependent uptake of L-alanine into small intestinal brush border membrane vesicles (BBMV) isolated from piglets 40 h after infection with transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus. Vesicles from TGE-infected pigs and uninfected litter-mate controls showed comparable degrees of enrichment and...

Errors in protein synthesis due to mispairing of amino acids with tRNAs jeopardize cell viability. Several checkpoints to prevent formation of Ala- and Cys-tRNA(Pro) have been described, including the Ala-specific editing domain (INS) of most bacterial prolyl-tRNA synthetases (ProRSs) and...
