Binding of the 50S ribosomal subunit to the 30S initiation complex and the subsequent transition from the initiation to the elongation phase up to the synthesis of the first peptide bond represent crucial steps in the translation pathway. The reactions that characterize these transitions were analyzed by quench-flow and fluorescence stopped-flow kinetic techniques. IF2-dependent GTP hydrolysis was fast (30/s) followed by slow P(i) release from the complex (1.5/s). The latter step was rate… CONTINUE READING
