Small is big in Arabidopsis mitochondrial ribosome

Ribosomes are the molecular machines that translate messenger RNAs into proteins. They consist of two subunits. The small one decodes messenger RNA and the large one carries out the polymerization of amino acids to form the corresponding protein.

The team of Philippe Giegé (team 5) in collaboration with the teams of Yaser Hashem (IECB, INSERM, Bordeaux) and Hakim Mireau (IJPB, INRA, Versailles) has determined the specific composition and architecture of Arabidopsis mitochondrial ribosomes.


This study was published on January 9,  2019 in the journal Nature Plants.
