Die Gene für ribosomale Komponenten und tRNS

  • Peter von Sengbusch

Zusammenfassung

An der Bildung eines Ribosoms sind über 100 Komponenten beteiligt, deren Gene über das Gesamtgenom verstreut sind. Es gibt kein Operon, und dennoch werden die Genprodukte — wie benötigt — in gleichen Mengen gebildet. Damit stellt sich die Frage nach der Regulation, und wir sind heute noch weit davon entfernt, eine auch nur annähernd befriedigende Antwort hierauf zu geben. Wir beginnen langsam zu verstehen, wie die Gene organisiert sind, nach welchem Muster sie transkribiert werden und unabhängig davon, wie die Genprodukte zusammengelagert werden.
