This conserved feature at the N-terminus of bacterial translation initiation factor IF2 has recently had its structure solved. It shows structural similarity to the tRNA anticodon Stem Contact Fold domains of the methionyl-tRNA and glutaminyl-tRNA synthetases, and a similar fold is also found in the B5 domain of the phenylalanine-tRNA synthetase.
