Structures of the Bacterial Ribosome at 3.5 Å Resolution
TLDR
Swiveling of the head of the small subunit observed in the present structures, coupled to the ratchet-like motion of the two subunits observed previously, suggests a mechanism for the final movements of messenger RNA and transfer RNAs during translocation.
The central role of protein S12 in organizing the structure of the decoding site of the ribosome.
TLDR
It is determined that conditional-lethal, streptomycin-dependence mutations in ribosomal protein S12 interfere with tRNA selection by allowing conformational distortions of the decoding site that impair GTPase activation of EF-Tu during the t RNA selection process.
decoding site of the ribosome The central role of protein S 12 in organizing the structure of the Material Supplemental
TLDR
It is determined that conditional-lethal, streptomycin-dependence mutations in ribosomal protein S12 interfere with tRNA selection by allowing conformational distortions of the decoding site that impair GTPase activation of EFTu during the t RNA selection process.
The initiation of mammalian protein synthesis and the mechanism of scanning
TLDR
The structures of three complexes of the small ribosomal subunit are determined that represent distinct steps in mammalian translation initiation and provide insights into the details of translation initiation specific to eukaryotes.
On Ribosome Conservation and Evolution
TLDR
Analysis of substrate binding modes to inactive and active ribosomes illuminated the significant PTC mobility and supported the hypothesis that the ancient ribosome produced sinews.
Symmetry at the active site of the ribosome: structural and functional implications
TLDR
The linkage between the elaborate PTC architecture and the spatial arrangements of the tRNA 3′-ends revealed the rotatory mechanism that integrates peptide bond formation, translocation within the PTC and nascent protein entrance into the exit tunnel.

Structure of a bacterial 30S ribosomal subunit at 5.5 Å resolution
TLDR
A crystallographic analysis of the structure of the 30S ribosomal subunit from the bacterium Thermus thermophilus shows double-helical regions of RNA to be identified throughout the subunit, and all seven of the small-subunit proteins of known crystal structure to be positioned in the electron density map.
Major rearrangements in the 70S ribosomal 3D structure caused by a conformational switch in 16S ribosomal RNA
TLDR
A wave of rearrangements can be traced arising from the switch in the three base pairs and involving functionally important regions in both subunits of the ribosome, which significantly affects the topography of the A‐site tRNA‐binding region on the 30S subunit and thereby explains changes in tRNA affinity for the Ribosome and fidelity of decoding mRNA.
A ratchet-like inter-subunit reorganization of the ribosome during translocation
TLDR
Three-dimensional cryo-electron microscopy maps of the Escherichia coli 70S ribosome in various functional states show that both EF-G binding and subsequent GTP hydrolysis lead to ratchet-like rotations of the small 30S sub unit relative to the large 50S subunit, indicating a two-step mechanism of translocation.
Structure of the S15,S6,S18-rRNA complex: assembly of the 30S ribosome central domain.
TLDR
The crystal structure of a 70-kilodalton ribonucleoprotein complex from the central domain of the Thermus thermophilus 30S ribosomal subunit was solved at 2.6 angstrom resolution and demonstrates the central role of S15-induced reorganization of central domain RNA for the subsequent steps of ribosome assembly.
Crystal structure of the S15–rRNA complex
TLDR
The 2.8 Å resolution crystal structure of the highly conserved S15–rRNA complex gives insights into the dual role of S15 in ribosome assembly and translational regulation.
Placement of protein and RNA structures into a 5 Å-resolution map of the 50S ribosomal subunit
TLDR
An electron-density map of the large 50S ribosomal subunit from the bacterium Haloarcula marismortui is calculated at 5.0 Å resolution by using phases derived from four heavy-atom derivatives, intercrystal density averaging and density-modification procedures.
A functional pseudoknot in 16S ribosomal RNA.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Watson‐Crick interactions between these nucleotides are essential for ribosomal function, and certain mild perturbations of the structure generate resistance to streptomycin, an antibiotic known to interfere with the decoding process.
Ribosomes and translation.
TLDR
Biochemical and genetic approaches have identified specific functional interactions involving conserved nucleotides in 16S and 23S rRNA and promise to yield an unprecedented view of the mechanism of translation in the coming years.
