Alexey Amunts’ group at Stockholm University determine the structure of the chlororibosome

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.
