Initiation of Protein Synthesis : a Critical Test of the 30S Subunit Model
The formation of an initiation complex involving the 30S ribosomal subunit, F-met-tRNAF, and mRNA is an obligatory step in the Initiation of protein synthesis in bacterial extracts.
Control of Translation by T4 Phage: Altered Binding of Disfavoured Messengers
A messenger selection process operates in infected cell extracts at the level of polypeptide chain initiation; and the agent responsible is present chiefly in the factor fraction of the ribosome.
Role of the Initiation Factor in the Response of 70S Ribosomes to R17 RNA
There is evidence that two of the factors are involved in chain termination rather than chain initiation, and the requirement of 70S ribosomes for initiation factors may simply reflect the loss of the Factors during isolation of the 70S Ribosomes.
Separation and Ribosome Specificity of the Enzymes that Catalyze Protein Synthesis in Vitro
The reported data show that, for in vitro protein synthesis by Escherichia coli ribosomes, E. coli Tu and G factors can be substituted by yeast enzymes, but E.E. coli Ts factor appears to be ribosome specific.
Recognition of bacterial initiator tRNA by an initiation factor.
Initiation factor F2a of E. coli seems to recognize only fMet-tRNAf. This may be analogous to the recognition of other aminoacyl-tRNAs by elongation factor T.
Control of Translation by T4 Phage : Altered Ribosome Binding at R17 Initiation Sites
After infection of E. coli by T4 phage, ribosomes lose their ability to bind efficiently to the coat and synthetase initiation sites of R17 RNA. This change lies in the initiator factor fraction.
The involvement of RNA in protein synthesis.
The binding of tRNA to ribosomes has been extensively studied with both bacterial and mammalian systems and there is a reaction between the 30S portion of the ribosome and the tRNA molecule.
Factors for the Initiation of Haemoglobin Synthesis by Rabbit Reticulocyte Ribosomes
At least three factors, M1, M2 and M3, are required for initiating the synthesis of new and complete haemoglobin α and β chains at low Mg2+ concentration. The M factors are distinct from the chain
Identification and Functional Characterization of the Protein controlled by the Streptomycin-resistant Locus in E. coli
The streptomycin locus of E. coli specifies a 30S ribosomal protein which determines the sensitivity of the 30S subunit to streptomycin and streptomycin induced errors of translation.
Role of Subunits in the Ribosome Cycle
In this article Dr Davis reviews recent developments in the search for the precise nature of the cycle of ribosomes in protein synthesis.
