An Intermediate in the Biosynthesis of Polyphenylalanine Directed by Synthetic Template RNA
Building on earlier poly-U investigations, this article suggests that the genetic code may not be universal, offering that
it may differ from species to species because variant sRNA base-pairings may substitute one amino acid for another during
