Protein synthesis by membrane-bound and free ribosomes of secretory and non-secretory tissues.


1. Methods for the separation of membrane-bound and free ribosomes from rat brain (cortex) and skeletal muscle were described and the preparations characterized by chemical analysis and electron microscopy. The attachment of ribosomes to membranes is not an artifact of the separation procedure. 2. The rate of incorporation of l-[(14)C]leucine into protein… (More)
