Abstract
A method for preparation of Escherichia coli ribosomes carrying lethal mutations in 23 S rRNA was developed. The method is based on the site-directed incorporation of a streptavidin binding tag into functionally neutral sites of the 23 S rRNA and subsequent affinity chromatography. It was tested with ribosomes mutated at the 23 S rRNA position 2655 (the elongation factor (EF)-G binding site). Ribosomes carrying the lethal G2655C mutation were purified and studied in vitro. It was found in particular that this mutation confers strong inhibition of the translocation process but only moderately affects GTPase activity and binding of EF-G.
