The Escherichia coli protein YjeQ is a circularly permuted GTPase that is broadly conserved in bacteria. An emerging body of evidence, including cofractionation and in vitro binding to the ribosome, altered polysome profiles after YjeQ depletion, and stimulation of GTPase activity by ribosomes, suggests that YjeQ is involved in ribosome function. The growth of strains lacking YjeQ in culture is severely compromised. Here, we probed the cellular function of YjeQ with genetic screens of ordered E… CONTINUE READING
