One can prepare rabbit ribosomes from reticulocytes (immature red blood cells), and by providing a few cofactors required for an active extract, create an in vitro system that will translate virtually any eukaryotic mRNA that contains the correct sequence determinants. You can purify mRNA from your cells or tissues of choice, or you can synthesize an mRNA in ...


what is the thing that gives the ribosome its functionality ( to synthesis the protein ). RNA strands can fold themselves in a sequence specific manner. In fact ribosomes are highly structural being able to hold tRNAs having a hole which a polypeptide goes through during protein sysnthesis. I do not know, but it could work. I do not know if it works ...
