Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006430 - lysyl-tRNA aminoacylation

Definition: The process of coupling lysine to lysyl-tRNA, catalyzed by lysyl-tRNA synthetase. In tRNA aminoacylation, the amino acid is first activated by linkage to AMP and then transferred to either the 2'- or the 3'-hydroxyl group of the 3'-adenosine residue of the tRNA.
