According to them, the genes tRNA synthetase, ATPase, and carbomyl phosphate synthetase could not be used confidently to root the tree of life because of the difficulty to choose between different evolutionary scenarios, knowing that gene duplication, gene loss, and lateral gene transfer have been frequent during prokaryotic evolution.

Such mRNAs begin with a 5'-AUG-3' start codon at or very near the 5' terminus of the message, and their lack of 5' untranslated leaders means that they also lack conventional Shine-Dalgarno homologies believed to exist in most prokaryotic messages.
