Comments "The assembly and maturation of the ribosomal subunits are very complex and involve a series of events, such as processing and modification of rRNA, ordered binding of ribosomal proteins and metal ions, and sequential conformational changes. In vivo this takes approximately 2 min at 37°C (primary sources)."
