Slip of grip of a molecular motor on a crowded track: Modeling shift of reading frame of ribosome on RNA template

Abstract

We develop a stochastic model for the programmed frameshift of ribosomes synthesizing a protein while moving along a mRNA template. Normally the reading frame of a ribosome decodes successive triplets of nucleotides on the mRNA in a step-by-step manner. We focus on the programmed shift of the ribosomal reading frame, forward or backward, by only one… (More)
