The key factor ribosomal protein production

In all living cells, DNA is transcribed into RNA, and translation of RNA into protein. The information is translated into a protein on the RNA molecule the plant is called “the ribosome.”

 

In all living cells, DNA is transcribed into RNA, and translation of RNA into protein. The information is translated into a protein on the RNA molecule is the plant called “ribosome” (the film was shown in the attached). This is a large and complex entity, RNA and proteins.

Adopt a new approach, Yale University Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, Nobel Laureate Lord Thomas Steitz lab researchers describe, and called elongation factor 4 (EF4 / LepA, the figure is dark blue ) The crystal structure of the new ribosome binding protein, and the protein plays an important role in the hitherto unknown protein production. Protein production is an essential process of all life.

Obtaining a new structure reveals the complex process of protein production, as well as the creation of more specialized drug paved road. Related articles published in the “science” magazine August 8, 2014 in.
