Polyelectrolyte behavior and kinetics of aminoacyl-tRNA on the ribosome.


The torque acting on cognate (three base pairs that are matched) "ternary complex" consisting of elongation factor-Tu, guanosine-5'-triphosphate GTP, and aminoacyl-transfer RNA due to induced wrapping of the 30S subunit of the ribosome and the speed with which the ternary complex samples the space allowed by diffusion is determined. Under appropriate… (More)
