Ribosome Stoichiometry: From Form to Function.
Identification of Changing Ribosome Protein Compositions using Mass Spectrometry
The quantitative proteomic data support the hypothesis that ribosomes are dynamic complexes that alter their composition and functional activity in response to changes in growth or environmental conditions.
Identification of changing ribosome protein compositions using cryo-EM and mass spectrometry
The combined cryo-EM and quantitative proteomic data support the hypothesis that ribosomes are dynamic complexes that alter their composition and functional activity in response to changes in growth or environmental conditions.
Invariable stoichiometry of ribosomal proteins in mouse brain tissues with aging
Qualitative proteomics data show an invariant protein composition of ribosomes from 4 tissues across different ages of mice and support the idea that functional heterogeneity may arise from factors other than simply ribosomal protein stoichiometry.
Hypoxia influences polysome distribution of human ribosomal protein S12 and alternative splicing of ribosomal protein mRNAs.
It is shown that the polysome association of ribosomal proteins is altered by low oxygen (hypoxia), a feature of the tumor microenvironment, in human cells and the data suggest that hypoxia may influence the composition of the human ribosome through changes in RP incorporation and the production of Hypoxia-specific RP isoforms.
Phosphorylation of the Ribosomal Protein RPL12/uL11 Affects Translation during Mitosis.
The evolving role of ribosomes in the regulation of protein synthesis.
This review presents an overview of currently available knowledge about ribosome heterogeneity, focusing on changes in protein composition, and their role in the control of translation specificity.
Systematic Review of Plant Ribosome Heterogeneity and Specialization
A data analysis pipeline is proposed that infers the heterogeneity of ribosome complexes and deviations from canonical structural compositions linked to stress events and can be extrapolated and enhanced by combination with other high-throughput methodologies, such as proteomics.
Investigating the roles of ribosome-associated proteins in translational regulation of gene expression
This work developed a proteomics-based approach to uncover novel ribosome-associated proteins that regulate translation in the cell and described how double-stranded DNA damage leads to the depletion of core ribosomal proteins, RPL40 and RPS27A.

How common are extraribosomal functions of ribosomal proteins?
Quantitative proteomic analysis of ribosome assembly and turnover in vivo.
Ribosome-omics of the human ribosome.
It is shown that for 80%-90% of the RP genes, the molar ratio of mRNAs varies less than threefold, with little tissue specificity, and since the RPs are needed in equimolar amounts, there must be sluggish or regulated translation of the more abundant RP m RNAs and/or substantial turnover of unused RPs.
Characterization of the ribosome biogenesis landscape in E. coli using quantitative mass spectrometry.
Specialized ribosomes: a new frontier in gene regulation and organismal biology
The hypothesis that intrinsic regulation by the ribosome acts to selectively translate subsets of mRNAs harbouring unique cis-regulatory elements, thereby introducing an additional level of regulation in gene expression and the life of an organism is discussed.
Ribosome biogenesis: of knobs and RNA processing.
The Ribosomal Protein Rpl22 Controls Ribosome Composition by Directly Repressing Expression of Its Own Paralog, Rpl22l1
It is proposed that ribosome specificity may exist in mammals, providing evidence that one ribosomal protein can influence composition of the ribosomes by regulating its own paralog.
