Model of ribosome translation and mRNA unwinding

  title={Model of ribosome translation and mRNA unwinding},
  author={Zhanfeng Wang},
  journal={European Biophysics Journal},
A ribosome is an enzyme that catalyzes translation of the genetic information encoded in messenger RNA (mRNA) into proteins. Besides translation through the single-stranded mRNA, the ribosome is also able to translate through the duplex region of mRNA via unwinding the duplex. Here, based on our proposed ribosome translation model, we study analytically the dynamics of Escherichia coli ribosome translation through the duplex region of mRNA, and compare with the available single molecule… CONTINUE READING
