Author information

  • 1Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK.


Last year, atomic structures of the 50S ribosomal subunit from Haloarcula marismortui and of the 30S ribosomal subunit from Thermus thermophilus were published. A year before that, a 7.8 A resolution electron density map of the 70S ribosome from T. thermophilus appeared. This information is revolutionizing our understanding of protein synthesis.
