Probing Ribosomal Structure and Function
Ribosomal RNA must have a strategic and important role that cannot be played by ribosomal proteins, nor perhaps by any other cellular component. The structural complexity of the ribosomal RNAs is not merely a gratuitous gesture of nature but is indicative of strong structural and functional roles. For these reasons, it is essential that the structural and functional domains of the ribosomal RNA within the ribosome be clearly defined and mapped.
