Polypeptide chain initiation in eukaryotes: mechanism of formation of initiation complex.


Artemia salina ribosomal subunits and highly purified reticulocyte initiation factors (IF) are used to study the mechanism of formation of the puromycin-sensitive initiation complex Met-tRNAi-80S ribosome-AUG. A complex with equimolar amounts of 40S subunit, GTP, and Met-tRNAi is formed at low Mg2+ concentration with a requirement for IF-MP (homogeneous… (More)
