We describe the crystal structure of the complete Thermus thermophilus 70S ribosome containing bound messenger RNA and transfer RNAs (tRNAs) at 5.5 angstrom resolution. All of the 16S, 23S, and 5S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) chains, the A-, P-, and E-site tRNAs, and most of the ribosomal proteins can be fitted to the electron density map. The core of the interface between the 30S small subunit and the 50S large subunit, where the tRNA substrates are bound, is dominated by RNA, with proteins located… Expand
Crystal Structure of a 70S Ribosome-tRNA Complex Reveals Functional Interactions and Rearrangements
TLDR
Differences between the conformations of vacant and tRNA-bound 70S ribosomes suggest an induced fit of the ribosome structure in response to tRNA binding, including significant changes in the peptidyl-transferase catalytic site. Expand
Structure of the mammalian 80S ribosome at 8.7 A resolution.
TLDR
The structure provides a snapshot of the mammalian ribosome at the beginning of translation and lends support to current models in which large movements of the small subunit and L1 stalk occur during tRNA translocation. Expand
The Structure of the Eukaryotic Ribosome at 3.0 Å Resolution
TLDR
The crystal structure of the 80S ribosome from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is reported, which reveals the architecture of eukaryote-specific elements and their interaction with the universally conserved core, and describes all eukariotes-specific bridges between the two ribosomal subunits. Expand
Structures of the Bacterial Ribosome at 3.5 Å Resolution
TLDR
Swiveling of the head of the small subunit observed in the present structures, coupled to the ratchet-like motion of the two subunits observed previously, suggests a mechanism for the final movements of messenger RNA and transfer RNAs during translocation. Expand
Structures of deacylated tRNA mimics bound to the E site of the large ribosomal subunit.
TLDR
The structures of complexes between the Haloarcula marismortui large ribosomal subunit and two different E site substrates are determined, explaining the specificity of the E site for deacylated tRNAs, as it is too small to accommodate any relevant aminoacyl-tRNA. Expand
Structure of the 70S Ribosome Complexed with mRNA and tRNA
TLDR
The crystal structure of the bacterial 70S ribosome refined to 2.8 angstrom resolution reveals atomic details of its interactions with messenger RNA (mRNA) and transfer RNA (t RNA) and metal ions also stabilize the intersubunit interface. Expand
Structural Studies of the Functional Complexes of the 50S and 70S Ribosome, a Major Antibiotic Target
Our crystal structure of the Haloarcula marismortui (H.ma.) 50S ribosomal subunit and its complexes with substrates and antibiotics have illuminated the mechanism of peptide bond formation and itsExpand
X-ray crystal structures of the WT and a hyper-accurate ribosome from Escherichia coli
TLDR
These 70S ribosome structures indicate that mRNA decoding is coupled primarily to movement of the small subunit body, consistent with previous proposals, whereas closing of the head and the helical switch may function in other steps of protein synthesis. Expand
Structure of the mammalian ribosome-channel complex at 17A resolution.
TLDR
The 17A structure of a mammalian ribosome-channel complex derived from ER membranes is reported, and data suggest that the flow of small molecules across the membrane may be impeded by the channel itself, rather than the ribosomal-channel junction. Expand
Crystal structure of the ribosome recycling factor bound to the ribosome
TLDR
The crystal structure of the Thermus thermophilus RRF bound to a 70S ribosomal complex containing a stop codon in the A site, a transfer RNA anticodon stem-loop in the P site and tRNAfMet in the E site is described, demonstrating that structures of translation factors bound to 70S Ribosomes can be determined at reasonably high resolution.

A ratchet-like inter-subunit reorganization of the ribosome during translocation
TLDR
Three-dimensional cryo-electron microscopy maps of the Escherichia coli 70S ribosome in various functional states show that both EF-G binding and subsequent GTP hydrolysis lead to ratchet-like rotations of the small 30S sub unit relative to the large 50S subunit, indicating a two-step mechanism of translocation.

This highly conserved ribonucleoprotein domain is the target for the thiostrepton family of antibiotics that disrupt elongation factor function and is proposed to function as a switch that reversibly associates with an adjacent region of RNA. Expand
The structural basis of ribosome activity in peptide bond synthesis.

It is established that the ribosome is a ribozyme and the catalytic properties of its all-RNA active site are addressed and the mechanism of peptide bond synthesis appears to resemble the reverse of the acylation step in serine proteases. Expand

The structure of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) in the ribosome was probed with hydroxyl radicals generated locally from iron(II) tethered to the 5' ends of anticodon stem-loop analogs of transfer RNA to predict the three-dimensional locations of the rRNA targets relative to the positions of A- and P- site transfer RNAs inside the Ribosome.

The findings suggest the existence of a communication pathway between the codon-anticodon binding sites of the 30S sub unit with the peptidyl transferase center of the 50S subunit via rRNA-rRNA interactions. Expand
