Redoxbiochemie des genetischen Codes
- 38 Downloads
Recent research on the quantum chemistry of the amino acids and on the temporal order of their ancient introduction into the genetic code has yielded the surprising finding that the amino acids have become system-atically softer (i. a. meaning more redox reactive) during evolution. This trend is recapitulated by recent innovations in organelle genetic codes found in present-day animals. Thus, aspects of chemical reactivity rather than three-dimensional structure optimization governed the finalization of the modern genetic code.
