Study on double promotion of the nucleic acids and the proteins
1994 - 1996
We have discovered that small primitive tRNA and activated amid acid make a peculiar reaction with dipeptide as a catalyst. It implicates that a life was born by several basic interactions between small life molecules of oligonucleotide and oligopeptide and raises doubts about the theory of so-called RNA world. New fields are now being opened again with the discovery of dipeptide with peptidyltransferase activity.
