Regulation of the Protein-Synthesizing Machinery—Ribosomes, tRNA, Factors, and So On

  • O. Maaløe
Part of the Biological Regulation and Development book series (BRD, volume 1)


The long title of this chapter was suggested by the editor. I find it excellent because, right away, it points to the complexity and vagueness of the subject. This in turn forces the author to clarify his position. First of all I shall not deal with eukaryotic cells; partly because I lack the necessary specialized knowledge, but also because, as a rule, these cells contain more than one protein-synthesizing system (PSS), making them particularly difficult to analyze. So, this chapter is about the PSS in bacteria with the usual bias toward Escherichia coli.
