Journal Article
Hori, N., Denesyuk, N. A., & Thirumalai, D. (2021). Shape changes and cooperativity in the folding of central domain of the 16S ribosomal RNA. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 118(10), https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.2020837118

Both the small and large subunits of the ribosome, the molecular machine that synthesizes proteins, are complexes of ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) and a number of proteins. In bacteria, the small subunit has a single 16S rRNA whose folding is the first step... Read More about Shape changes and cooperativity in the folding of central domain of the 16S ribosomal RNA.
