Abstract

SUMMARY

Previous work, (Subak-Sharpe & Hay, 1965, Subak-Sharpe, Shepherd & Hay, 1966), depending on the hybridization of [P]4s RNA from herpes virus infected cells to herpes DNA and analysis of the aminoacyloligonucleotide fragments produced after RNase T 1 digestion of [C]- and [H]-arginyl tRNA, suggested the presence, in infected cells of a herpes-specified arginyl tRNA. The present study indicates that these results were due to the presence of () radioactive RNA other than tRNA in the [P] 4sRNA, and () radioactive contaminants in the [H]-arginine used to aminoacylate the tRNA. Further purification of the aminoacyl tRNA removes these [H]-arginine contaminants. Protection of the aminoacyl tRNA ester bond by -acetylation improved the sensitivity of the aminoacyloligonucleotide analyses and permitted tRNA-specific molecular hybridization. Using these techniques, no herpes-specified arginyl tRNA was detected in cells 7 to 9 hr post infection.
