Another burst of smoke: Atomic resolution structures of RF3 bound to the ribosome

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Two recent reports provide atomic resolution information detailing the interaction of the class II release factor, RF3, with the bacterial ribosome. Differences in the composition of the two crystal forms allow us to learn a considerable amount about how translational GTPases engage the ribosome to facilitate and define conformational rearrangements involved in protein synthesis.
