Genetic information encoded in messenger RNA is translated into protein by the ribosome, which is a large nucleoprotein complex comprising two subunits, denoted 30S and 50S in bacteria. Here we report the crystal structure of the 30S subunit from Thermus thermophilus, refined to 3 Å resolution. The final atomic model rationalizes over four decades of biochemical data on the ribosome, and provides a wealth of information about RNA and protein structure, protein–RNA interactions and ribosome… 

The Structure of the Eukaryotic Ribosome at 3.0 Å Resolution

The crystal structure of the 80S ribosome from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is reported, which reveals the architecture of eukaryote-specific elements and their interaction with the universally conserved core, and describes all eukariotes-specific bridges between the two ribosomal subunits.

Functional insights from the structure of the 30S ribosomal subunit and its interactions with antibiotics

The functional implications of the high-resolution 30S crystal structure are described, and details of the interactions between the 30S subunit and its tRNA and mRNA ligands are inferred, which lead to a model for the role of the universally conserved 16S RNA residues A1492 and A1493 in the decoding process.

5.5 Å Structure of the Eukaryotic Ribosome

Cryo-electron microscopy and single-particle reconstruction provide insights into the structure, function and evolution of the eukaryotic translational apparatus with near-complete atomic models of the 80S ribosome.

The structural basis of large ribosomal subunit function.

The work reviewed proves beyond doubt that the ribosome is an RNA enzyme, as had long been surmised on the basis of less conclusive evidence.

Structure of the 70S Ribosome Complexed with mRNA and tRNA

The crystal structure of the bacterial 70S ribosome refined to 2.8 angstrom resolution reveals atomic details of its interactions with messenger RNA (mRNA) and transfer RNA (t RNA) and metal ions also stabilize the intersubunit interface.

Assembly of the 30S ribosomal subunit.

The goal of this review is to discuss some crucial aspects of 30S ribosomal subunit assembly.

Atomic model of the Thermus thermophilus 70S ribosome developed in silico.

An atomic model of the T. thermophilus ribosome is developed using a homology modeling approach that is stereochemically sound with a consistent single-species sequence and consistent with the low-resolution crystal structure.

The structure and function of the eukaryotic ribosome.

This review describes the X-ray crystal structures of the Tetrahymena thermophila 40S and 60S subunits and the Saccharomyces cerevisiae 80S ribosome, as well as cryo-electron microscopy reconstructions of translating yeast and plant 80S Ribosomes.

All-atom homology model of the Escherichia coli 30S ribosomal subunit

Using a new RNA homology procedure, it is found that the tertiary structure of the ribosome core, including the A-, P- and E-sites, is highly conserved.

Structure of a bacterial 30S ribosomal subunit at 5.5 Å resolution

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.

Functional insights from the structure of the 30S ribosomal subunit and its interactions with antibiotics

The functional implications of the high-resolution 30S crystal structure are described, and details of the interactions between the 30S subunit and its tRNA and mRNA ligands are inferred, which lead to a model for the role of the universally conserved 16S RNA residues A1492 and A1493 in the decoding process.

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.

RNA-protein interactions in 30S ribosomal subunits: folding and function of 16S rRNA.

Several lines of evidence suggest that protein-dependent conformational changes in 16S rRNA play an important part in the cooperativity of ribosome assembly and in fine-tuning of the conformation and dynamics of 16SrRNA in the 30S subunit.

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 ribosomal protein S6 from Thermus thermophilus.

Based on the assumption that the structure of the ribosome was established early in the molecular evolution, the possibility that an ancestral RNA‐interacting motif in ribosomal proteins is the evolutionary origin for the nucleic acid‐interacted domain in large classes of ribonucleic acid binding proteins should be considered.

Solution structure of the ribosomal protein S19 from Thermus thermophilus.

A high-resolution solution structure of S19 from Thermus thermophilus shows that S19 is a mixed alpha/beta protein with long disordered tails and the folding topology is not homologous to that of any other known protein structure.
