Office of Technology Assessment, which declared that molecular biotechnology is “a new scientific revolution that could change the lives and futures of . . citizens as dramatically as did the Industrial Revolution two centuries ago and the computer revolution today. The ability to manipulate genetic material to achieve specified outcomes in living organisms . . ” It does, however, offer solutions to some serious global problems, including the spread of infectious diseases, the burden of waste accumulation, and food shortages.
In addition to thousands of ribosomes, a cell that is actively synthesizing proteins has about 60 different types of tRNA molecules. The tRNA molecules range in length from about 75 to 93 nucleotides. Because of intrastrand complementary segments of nucleotides, each tRNA molecule forms a folded, L-shaped structure (Fig. 15). A particular amino acid is enzymatically linked by its carboxyl end to the 3′ end of a specific tRNA. For example, the enzyme arginyl-tRNA synthetase adds the amino acid arginine to the tRNAArg molecule.
