3* end of anticodon
FIGURE 15-3 Structure of yeast IRNAphi. (a) The left panel shows a view of the L-shaped molecule based on X-ray diffraction date, (b) The right pane! shows an enlargement of the anticodon loop. Bases in the anticodon (34-36) are shown in red. The anticodon and the following two bases (37 and 38) on the 3' side are partially stacked. It can be seen that the base at the 5' end of tlte anticodon is freer to wobble than is the fully stacked base at the 3' end of the anticodon (Source: Adapted from Kim S-K et al 1974.
