Abstract

Biological systems synthesize proteins with an almost exclusive use of L-amino acids and virtually none of the D isomer. There has been no satisfactory explanation for the origin of this use of the L isomer. Research presented here shows that at pH 5, transfer of phenylalanine from the ...read more
