1. 1. The behaviour of the tRNA population during the acclimatization process was studied, examining the intracellular levels of aminoacylated-tRNAs in livers from summer and winter adapted carps (Cyprinus carpio). 2. 2. The in vivo content of Val-tRNA, Ala-tRNA and Met-tRNA decreased significantly during the summer season, in which Val was 80%, Ala 47% and Met 54% with respect to the values attained in winter. 3. 3. The half-life for the nonenzymic deacylation showed significant variations for the two populations of aminoacyl-tRNA obtained from summer and winter acclimatized fish.
