Using a mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae defective in the NAT1 gene, that encodes one of the NH2-terminal acetyltransferases, we have identified 14 ribosomal proteins whose electrophoretic mobility at pH 5.0 suggests they carry an additional charge, presumably due to the lack of NH2-terminal acetylation. At least 30 other ribosomal proteins from the… CONTINUE READING
