Comments P.561 left column bottom paragraph:"Apart from the core, each of the ribosomes contains its own set of specific moieties: domain-specific proteins, insertions and extensions of conserved proteins and expansion segments of rRNAs [refs 24,25] (Fig. 2)." P.565 right column 3rd paragraph:"Other examples of the flexibility of expansion segments (ES7L, ES15L, ES27L and ES39L) were shown in low-resolution cryo-EM maps of the mammalian ribosomes (the main difference in higher eukaryotes is that already existing expansion segments have been considerably increased in length Fig. 2)."
