Reconstruction of the dynamics of translocation of tRNA through the ribosome based on 4 crystal structures

avi (12 MB) :::

Rf2 movie 1

Rf2 with mRNA and selected 16S and 23S nucleotides. The movie shows a morph of closed Rf2 into open Rf2 with developement of interaction sites.

Translation movie 3

Translation movie showing the proposed movement of the A-, P- and E-site tRNA's during translocation and elongation

mov (91 MB) :::

70S movie

A 360 degree rotation of the 70S ribosome, tRNAs and mRNA.

Small 349x261 (9.7 MB) ::: Large 700x525 (37 MB)

70S VR

A Quicktime VR movie of the ribosome. Dragging in the horizontal axis rotates the model while dragging in the vertical axis changes which portions of the ribosome are displayed. 624x500 (55 MB)

Hybrid States movie

A Hybrid states movie showing the proposed movement of the A-, P- and E-site tRNA's during translocation and elongation. 640x480 (2.6 MB)

30S States movie

Three conformational states of the 30S subunit based on x-ray structures of the 30S as part of the 70S complex, and crystallized alone in the presence of tRNA anticodon stem loops and antibotics. 624x500 (28MB)
