Two papersâone by Weixlbaumer et al. on page 953 of this issue (1), and the other by Laurberg et al. in Nature (2)ânow report crystal structures that shed light on how translation is terminated and how the finished protein is released from the ribosome. The studies investigate two closely related proteins called release factors that respond to different stop codons (nucleotide sequences in mRNA that signal termination of translation) in bacteria.
