Recognition of termination codon by release factor in the presence of a tRNA-occupied A site. Evidence for flexibility in accommodation of the release factor on the ribosome.

Abstract

Recognition of the termination codon by release factor was studied with 70 S ribosomes containing initiator tRNA at the P site and an amino acid-specifying codon as well as the corresponding cognate tRNA at the A site. In vitro termination was not excluded when either the A site was occupied with an amino acid-specifying codon or the termination codon was… (More)
