Eukaryotic Ribosome Assembly, Transport and Quality Control


Eukaryotic Ribosome Assembly, Transport and Quality Control

Cohue Peña et al. Nat Struct Mol Biol. .


Eukaryotic ribosome synthesis is a complex, energy-consuming process that takes place across the nucleolus, nucleoplasm and cytoplasm and requires more than 200 conserved assembly factors. Here, we discuss mechanisms by which the ribosome assembly and nucleocytoplasmic transport machineries collaborate to produce functional ribosomes. We also highlight recent cryo-EM studies that provided unprecedented snapshots of ribosomes during assembly and quality control.
