rRNA maturation in Escherichia coli

Proteins:
Ribonuclease E
Ribonuclease G
Ribonuclease T
ribonuclease III


Ribosomal RNAs are the major components of ribosomes and are responsible for their catalytic activity. The three bacterial rRNAs (16S, 23S, and 5S) are cotranscribed as a single molecule (rrnC operon) that must be converted to the mature, functioning species through a series of nucleolytic processing events and base and sugar modifications that occur in the context of the assembling ribosome.
