Protein Synthesis and Ribosome Structure:
Translating the Genome

edited by K.H. Nierhaus
and D.N. Wilson


Based on more than 30 years of ribosome research and incorporating the most recent structural evidence, this book presents a uniform picture of the largest enzyme complex found in living cells, shedding light on many decades-old questions in molecular biology.

Coverage includes:

  • Structure of the Ribosome
  • Ribosome Assembly
  • tRNA and Synthetases
  • mRNA Degradation
  • Initiation and Elongation
  • Termination and Ribosome Recycling
  • Regulation of Ribosome Biosynthesis
  • Inhibition of the Translational Apparatus by Antibiotics

A premier resource for anyone with an interest in ribosomal protein synthesis, whether in the context of molecular biology, biotechnology, pharmacology or molecular medicine.
