RNA-protein interactions in the Escherichia coli ribosome.

Over the last two decades essentially three different approaches have been used to study the topography of RNA-protein interactions in the ribosome. These are: (a) the analysis of binding sites for individual ribosomal proteins or groups of proteins on the RNA; (b) the determination of protein footprint sites on the RNA by the application of higher order structure analytical techniques; and (c) the localisation of RNA-protein cross-link sites on the RNA. This article compares and contrasts the types of data that the three different approaches provide, and gives a brief and highly simplified summary of the results that have been obtained for both the 16S and 23S ribosomal RNA from E coli.
