Ribosomes isolated from highly purified rat, cow, pig, or rabbit liver mitochondria occur predominantly as 55 to 56 S particles under conditions that stabilize 70 S Escherichia coli monosomes. These ribosomes are of mitochondrial origin since they incorporate 3H-leucine when mitochondria are incubated in vitro, under conditions in which extramitochondrial ribosomes are inactive. They are actively involved in mitochondrial protein synthesis, since puromycin strips 55 S ribosomes of their nascent… CONTINUE READING
