Alexey Amunts’ group at Stockholm University have determined the structure of the chlororibosome using cryo-electron microscopy. The chlororibosome synthesises the energy-making protein components that drive oxygenic photosynthesis in chloroplasts. This work reveals unexpected insights into this central protein synthesis machinery in plants and provides a new perspective for the investigation of the evolution of translation and its regulation.
