    Ribosomal protein L2 is a core element of the large subunit that is highly conserved among all three kingdoms. L2 contacts almost every domain of the large subunit rRNA and participates in an intersubunit bridge with the small subunit rRNA. It contains a solvent-accessible globular domain that...

    Specific binding of ribosomal proteins to rRNA has been analyzed, and the method for determining the recognizing modules on the protein surface has been proposed. This method is based on the search for the atoms on the protein molecule that are involved in the conserved hydrogen bonds with rRNA...

    During yeast ribosome synthesis, three early cleavages generate the 20S precursor to the 18S rRNA component of the 40S subunits. These cleavages can occur either on the nascent transcript (nascent transcript cleavage; NTC) or on the 35S pre-rRNA that has been fully transcribed and released from...

  • The DEAH-box Helicase Dhr1 Dissociates U3 from the Pre-rRNA to Promote Formation of the Central Pseudoknot. Sardana, Richa; Liu, Xin; Granneman, Sander; Zhu, Jieyi; Gill, Michael; Papoulas, Ophelia; Marcotte, Edward M.; Tollervey, David; Correll, Carl C.; Johnson, Arlen W. // PLoS Biology;Feb2015, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p1 

    In eukaryotes, the highly conserved U3 small nucleolar RNA (snoRNA) base-pairs to multiple sites in the pre-ribosomal RNA (pre-rRNA) to promote early cleavage and folding events. Binding of the U3 box A region to the pre-rRNA is mutually exclusive with folding of the central pseudoknot (CPK), a...
