Sažetak
The existence of aminoacyl-tRNAs was predicted during the late 50s as molecules that transfer
specific amino acids for protein synthesis. Today we know that, in addition to protein synthesis, these
molecules can also participate in several other cellular functions. One of these aminoacyl-tRNAs,
glutamyl-tRNA, can participate in at least three functions in bacteria: biosynthesis of glutaminyl-tRNA,
tetrapyrroles and proteins. In this article we discuss how bacterial cells manage to distribute glutamyltRNA
among all these functions. Proteins involved in each pathway recognize different features of the
tRNA which allows them to use only the correct glutamyl-tRNA species. Also, the formation of macromolecular
complexes allows the utilization of each of these species by the correct proteins. This compartmentalization
is critical for bacterial fitness as it prevents the incorporation of intermediates in the incorrect
pathway.(doi: 10.5562/cca1830)
