Structure and function of the eukaryotic ribosome: the next frontier

Cell. 2002 Apr 19;109(2):153-6. doi: 10.1016/s0092-8674(02)00725-0.

Abstract

As the catalytic and regulatory centers of protein synthesis in cells, ribosomes are central to many aspects of cell and structural biology. Recent work highlights the unique properties and complexity of eukaryotic ribosomes and their component rRNAs and proteins.
