Structural information about the ribosomes has been sought in many ways1,2. It is known that the 50S subunit of Escherichia coli ribosomes contains four copies of the ribosomal protein L7/L12 (refs 3–7) in a unique region8,9. A complex can be isolated consisting of those four copies bound to another ribosomal protein, L10 (refs 10–13). L7/L12 aggregates into elongated dimers in solution14,15. Ribosomes deprived of L7/L12 have a reduced affinity for supernatant factors such as EF-Tu and EF-G and… CONTINUE READING
