Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Transfer ribonucleic acid from rapidly growing tissues, particularly from neoplasia, is partially deficient in queuine, a highly modified transfer ribonucleic acid constituent. By means of an enzymatic assay we also found a queuine deficiency (14%) in human placenta transfer ribonucleic acid despite its high concentrations in the amniotic fluid. Proposed cause and significance of the results are discussed.
