Abstract

A three dimensional model is presented which shows the spatial arrangement of 20 of the 21 proteins of the 30S ribosomal subunit of Escherichia coli. The model fulfills several purposes: (a) It summarizes currently available structural and functional data on ribosomal proteins; (b) It suggests an interesting correlation between stoichiometry and function. Functional proteins are both clustered and fractional; (c) It can be evaluated in relation to new data, and it may predict relationships or point out critical experiments by which it can be tested.
