Dynamics and processivity of 40S ribosome scanning on mRNA in yeast.

Abstract

The eukaryotic 40S ribosomal subunit locates the translation initiation codon on an mRNA via the so-called scanning process that follows 40S binding to the capped 5' end. This key step in translation is required for the expression of almost all eukaryotic genes, yet the mechanism and dynamics of scanning are unknown. We have performed quantitative studies… (More)
