    Specific structural elements of the T-box riboswitch drive the two-step binding of the tRNA ligand

    Jiacheng Zhang et al.
    The glycine T-box riboswitch recognizes tRNAgly and senses its aminoacylation state by first interacting with the anticodon region and subsequently probing the 3' end of the ligand using both specific structural elements and conformational dynamics.
