Abstract A combination of MD simulations and free energy calculations have been used to propose a new model for the binding of amino acids to threonyl-tRNA-synthetase which not only yields a stable binding mode for L-Ser but also can explain the mechanism by which the editing domains of aminoacyl-tRNA-synthetases are enantiomeric selective preferentially binding D-amino acids.
