Terminal structure mediates 5 S rRNA stability and integration during ribosome biogenesis.

Formation of the eukaryotic ribosomal 5 S RNA-protein complex has been shown to be critical to ribosome biogenesis and has been speculated to contribute to a quality control mechanism that helps ensure that only normal precursors are processed and assembled into active ribosomes. To study the structural basis of these observations, the RNA-protein interface… CONTINUE READING
