Purified 30S subunits ...It is only after recent advances in cryo-electron microscopy that it is now possible to describe at high-resolution structures of large macromolecules that do not crystalize. Purified 30S subunits interconvert between an "active" and "inactive" conformation. The active conformation was described by crystallography in the early 2000s, but the structure of the inactive form at high resolution remains unsolved. Here we used cryo-electron microscopy to obtain the structure of the inactive conformation of the 30S subunit to 3.6 Å resolution and study its motions. In the inactive conformation, an alternative base-pairing of three nucleotides causes the region of helix 44, forming the decoding center to adopt an unlatched conformation and the 3' end of the 16S rRNA positions similarly to the mRNA during translation. Incubation of inactive 30S subunits at 42°C reverts these structural changes. The air-water interface to which ribosome subunits are exposed during sample preparation also peel off some ribosomal proteins. Extended exposures to low magnesium concentrations make the ribosomal particles more susceptible to the air-water interface causing the unfolding of large rRNA structural domains. Overall, this study provides new insights about the conformational space explored by the 30S ribosomal subunit when the ribosomal particles are free in solution.|

+Jan 31, 2019. EMDB accession codes are about to change! (news from PDBe EMDB page)
EMDB accession codes are about to change! (news from PDBe EMDB page)
- The allocation of 4 digits for EMDB accession codes will soon come to an end. Whilst these codes will remain in use, new EMDB accession codes will include an additional digit and will expand incrementally as the available range of codes is exhausted. The current 4-digit format prefixed with “EMD-” (i.e. EMD-XXXX) will advance to a 5-digit format (i.e. EMD-XXXXX), and so on. It is currently estimated that the 4-digit codes will be depleted around Spring 2019, at which point the 5-digit format will come into force. (see PDBe EMDB page)
- The EM Navigator/Yorodumi systems omit the EMD- prefix.
