Study on the functions of ribosomal RNA and proteins

Study period:1999 - 2006
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (1):
Research field (1): Others
Research overview:
Ribosomes mediate protein synthesis in all living cells. They contain highly conserved RNA molecules (rRNA) and many ribosomal proteins whose functions have not been clarified yet. To elucidate the individual functional roles in protein synthesis, we carry out various biochemical studies using materials isolated from ribosomes of Escherichia coli, rat, human, and silkworm.
