A convenient method to purify each of the non-ribosomal proteins required to translate a native mRNA in vitro is described. In this scheme, the ribosome is used as an 'affinity' matrix to selectively elute the non-ribosomal proteins required for translation that are bound to these particles. Different sets of these proteins can be eluted with solutions of… (More)
