Puromycin photoaffinity labels small- and large-subunit proteins at the A site of the Drosophila ribosome.


[3H]Puromycin covalently incorporates into the protein and to a much lesser extent into the RNA components of Drosophila ribosomes in the presence of 254-nm light. The photoincorporation reaction takes place with a small number of large- (L2 and L17) and small- (S8 and S22) subunit proteins as determined by two-dimensional gel analysis.
