Domain movements of elongation factor eEF2 and the eukaryotic 80S ribosome facilitate tRNA translocation
An 11.7‐Å‐resolution cryo‐EM map of the yeast 80S·eEF2 complex in the presence of the antibiotic sordarin was interpreted in molecular terms, revealing large conformational changes within eEF2 andExpand

Molecular architecture of the human pre-mRNA 3' processing complex.
Pre-mRNA 3' end formation is an essential step in eukaryotic gene expression. Over half of human genes produce alternatively polyadenylated mRNAs, suggesting that regulated polyadenylation is anExpand
