Figure 8.28Ribosome assembly

Ribosomal proteins are imported to the nucleolus from the cytoplasm and begin to assemble on pre-rRNA prior to its cleavage. As the pre-rRNA is processed, additional ribosomal proteins and the 5S rRNA (which is synthesized elsewhere in the nucleus) assemble to form preribosomal particles. The final steps of maturation follow the export of preribosomal particles to the cytoplasm, yielding the 40S and 60S ribosomal subunits.
