One of the most abundant cellular assemblies of RNA and proteins is the ribosome, the organelle which operates as a multi-functional enzyme translating the genetic code into polypeptide chains. Ribosomes are built of two structurally independent subunits of unequal size, which associate upon initiation of protein biosynthesis. A typical bacterial ribosome… CONTINUE READING
