Structure and function of intersubunit bridges in procaryotic ribosome
Languages of publication
The main function of ribosome is decoding of the genetic message and formation of peptide bonds. Protein synthesis is a dynamic process during which tRNA and mRNA are translocated through the ribosome. Ribosomal subunits, small and large, are joined together by a series of bridges, which make possible forming of an active ribosome. It this paper we present the functional importance of ribosomal bridges.
