1. Insights Into Protein Synthesis - Structural Aspects of Elongation Factor G and Fusidic Acid Inhibition
Sammanfattning : Elongation factor G (EF-G) catalyses the translocation step in protein synthesis on the ribosome. During this event the antibiotic Fusidic acid (FA) binds to and irreversably inhibits the release of the EF-G:GDP complex from the ribosome. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Protein synthesis, translation, performed by the ribosome, is a fundamental process of life and one of the main targets of antibacterial drugs. This thesis provides structural and biochemical understanding of three aspects of bacterial translation.Elongation factor G (EF-G) is the target for the antibiotic fusidic acid (FA). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Protein synthesis is a highly complex process executed by the ribosome in coordination with mRNA, tRNAs and translational protein factors. Several antibiotics are known to inhibit bacterial protein synthesis by either targeting the ribosome or the proteins factors involved in translation. LÄS MER
4. Mechanisms and Inhibition of EF-G-dependent Translocation and Recycling of the Bacterial Ribosome
Sammanfattning : The GTPase elongation factor G (EF-G) is an important player in the complex process of protein synthesis by bacterial ribosomes. Although extensively studied much remains to be learned about this fascinating protein. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Translational elongation is the process in which the ribosome adds one amino acid at a time to the nascent peptide chain. As the ribosome elongates the peptide chain by 14 - 20 amino acids per second and performs hundreds of such cycles per protein, ‘elongation’ is one of the most crucial steps in translation. LÄS MER
