The dissociation of purified 70 S.E. coli ribosomes, induced by the dissociation factor DF, has been studied by submitting the reaction mixtures to electrophoresis on polyacrylamide gels. The electrophoretic analysis of the ribosome mixtures revealed a heterogeneity which escaped detection by conventional sucrose gradient centrifugation. Increasing amounts of DF in the reaction mixtures converted 70 S ribosomes to particles (designated 70 S (I)) which migrate slower in the electric field than… CONTINUE READING
