||"[Researchers] have for the first time successfully analyzed the flexibility of 70S ribosomal proteins in solution by detecting the hydrogen/deuterium exchange with mass spectrometry."
||"The ribosome from Escherichia coli, which plays a central role in the peptide synthesis in cells, is a supermacro complex (MW: 2.7 MDa) comprising three RNA molecules and more
than 50 proteins. These ribosomal proteins are widely distributed on three RNA molecules by non-covalent intermolecular interactions such as hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions."
