Abstract

Abstract The binding of N-acetyl- 14C-phenylalanyl-tRNA to ribosomes pretreated with polyuridylic acid and deacylated tRNA was almost completely inhibited by tetracycline and partly by siomycin. The N-acetyl- 14C-phenylalanyl-tRNA bound to ribosomes preincubated with deacylated tRNA was found to be unreactive to puromycin. By incubating the ternary complex with G factor and GTP, however, the greater part of the bound N-acetyl- 14C-phenylalalyl-tRNA became reactive to puromycin, this amount being equivalent to that amount of N-acetyl- 14C-phenylalanyl-tRNA whose binding to deacylated tRNA-treated ribosomes is inhibited by siomycin.
