Ribosome-bound eukaryotic elongation factor 2 protects 5 S rRNA from modification.

The interaction between eukaryotic elongation factor eEF-2 and reconstituted 80 S ribosomes was investigated by analyzing the accessibility of 5 S ribosomal RNA for chemical and enzymatic modification. Ribosomes reconstituted from derived subunits were modified, and the positions of the modified sites were identified by primer extension using a 5 S rRNA… CONTINUE READING
