Characterization of the initial peptide of Q-beta RNA polymerase and control of its synthesis.

Abstract

Bacteriophage Qbeta RNA directs the cell-free synthesis of two fMet-containing dipeptides prior to the first round of ribosomal translocation. One of these, fMet-Ala, corresponds to the initial segment of the Qbeta coat protein. In the present work we take advantage of the fact that translation of the Qbeta RNA polymerase cistron is repressed by its coat… (More)
