Peptide chain termination with mammalian release factor.

Abstract

We report a method for the in vitro study of peptide chain termination in mammals. A proteinaceous release factor has been isolated from rabbit reticulocyte extracts. This factor and a polyribonucleotide template containing the bases U and A stimulate the release of N-formylmethionine from mammalian [N-formylmethionyl-tRNA(f).ribosome] intermediates. Our… (More)
