The ABC(E1)s of Ribosome Recycling and Reinitiation

Mol Cell. 2017 Jun 1;66(5):578-580. doi: 10.1016/j.molcel.2017.05.017.


In a recent issue of Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, Heuer et al. (2017) present a 3.9-Å cryo-EM structure of the 40S:ABCE1 post-splitting complex. This structure provides new insights into a dual role for ABCE1 in translation recycling and reinitiation and revisits the interpretation of Simonetti et al. (2016).
