Determinant of cistron specificity in bacterial ribosomes.

Nature 1975 Mar;254(5495):34-8

The sequence of the 3'-terminus of 16S RNA from different bacteria has been determined. Complementarity relationships between this sequence and a purine-rich tract in the ribosome binding site of different bacterial mRNAs suggest that the 3'-end of 16S RNA determines the intrinsic capacity of ribosomes to translate a particular cistron.
