Ribosome Binding Factor A

Ribosome Binding Factor A (RBFA) associates with free 30S ribosome subunits in E. Coli. It does not associate with 30S subunits within 70S ribosomes or polysomes. It appears to be involved in a late step of 30S maturation or translation initiation. Also, it may interact with the 5' terminal helix region of 16S sRNA.

The following image was color coded with 15N heteronuclear NOE variation along the chain. White indicates there was no data for that particular residue, red indicates the residues with the lowest NOE value ("fastest moving"), and blue indicates the residues with the largest NOE value ("slowest moving").
