Ribosome tail ends as "signal detectors" for protein production in prokaryotes


The 16s ribosomal tail has been conjectured to play an important role in the regulation of protein production. In previous work, we generated sequences of 13 base pairs as hypothetical ribosome tail ends for E. coli K-12. We found the actual E. coli ribosome tail to be significantly different from a randomly generated one in the magnitude of the lock and… (More)
