In E. coli, RF1 recognizes UAG and binds at the A site → TERMINATION
RF1 = release factor that recognizes UAG → a stop codon
In E. coli, EF-G-GTP displaces the tRNA in the A site → ELONGATION
EF-G-GTP = promotes translocation through GTP binding and hydrolysis
Determine whether the following events occur during initiation, elongation, or termination.
In E. coli, RF1 recognizes UAG and binds at the A site
in E. coli, EF-G-GTP displaces the tRNA in the A site
an aminoacyl-tRNA enters the A site
in E. coli, mRNA binds to the 30S ribosomal subunit
kinetic proofreading occurs
the first AUG initiator tRNA codon is recognized
initiator tRNA enters the P site
