ABSTRACT

V4 e_phenylalanine incorporation was induced by homogeneous

preparations of wheat-seedling cytoplasmic and chloroplast ribosomes which had been isolated by zonal centrifugation. Wheat embryo

synthetase enzymes in the presence of stripped yeast tRNA and a

C-phenyl- alanine produced Mae -phenylalany] tRNA which was used in the incorpora- tion systen. The incorporation by cytoplasmic 79S ribosomes required high concentrations of ribosomes, high concentrations of magnesium, low concentrations of tris-HCl buffer pH 7.6, and was complete after 45

minutes incubation at ave This transfer of 4

14

C-phenylalanine fron C-phenylalanyl tRNA into protein was not dependent upon added energy factors. Incorporation by both species of ribosomes was inhibited by puromycin, only the chloroplast ribosomes were inhibited by chlor- anphenicol, and neither species of wheat-seedling ribosomes was inhibited by cycloheximide. The cytoplasmic ribosomes dissociated into subunits which would reassociate to form the parent species. Puromycin pretreatment of ribosomes resulted in complete dissociation. The reformed parent species would not induce polyphenyialanine synthesis. The results led to the conclusion that the honogenization and separation precedures had cleaved the polysomes into monosomes which contained

not only mRNA fragments, but nascent protein as well.

INTRODUCTION

Protein synthesis in eukaryotes is thought to occur by a system generally similar to that of prokaryotes. Dissimilarities in their ribosones and in the initiation of protein synthesis by then have been reported. Leaves of higher plants contain abundant amounts of the two classes of ribosomes in the same cell. ‘Therefore, despite the difficulties associated with sorting out homogeneous ribosome : classes, they afford a unique opportunity for comparative studies.

The ribosomes of the plant cytoplasm are of the eukaryotic class, while the ribosomes found in the chloroplast and mitochondria have characteristics similar to those of prokaryotes. These three types of ribosones are apparently capable of synthesizing proteins. Lately,

a great deal of research evidence has confirmed that the ribosomes found in the cytoplasm are different from those found in the chloroplasts

or mitochondria. Various methods used to obtain relatively-hono- geneous preparations of ribosomes have included organelle isolation, plant etiolation and the use of seed germ. A different approach in studying protein synthesis of the individual types of ribosanes involves the use of specific inhibitors of protein synthesis. In the present study the approach was to separate the chloroplast and cytoplasmic ribosomes fron an heterogeneous mixture by means of zonal centrifugation. Using this method relatively-large quantities of chloroplast and cytoplasmic wheat leaf ribosomes were obtained and the intactness of these was demonstrated by their ability to incorporate 14 0_phenylalanine.

This study was undertaken to characterize the general

features of an incorporation systen containing these ribosomes.

LITERATURE REVIEW

I. Mechanism of Protein Synthesis

A. Introduction

Although the procedure involved in the organization and formation of a protein is a dynamic process, it is often divided into three steps--initiation, elongation, and termination--for ease in comprehension. This section of the literature review is similarly divided; however, Figure 1 attenpts to show protein synthesis in a more operational state.

Boulter (1970) states that "most of our knowledge of the mechanism of protein synthesis is derived fron experiments using 70S

microbial ribosomes, particularly those of E. coli". This portion of

the literature review, therefore describes the process with data obtained fron bacteria rather than from plants. As is discussed tater in this review, protein synthesis in eukaryotes is thought to occur by a mech- anism similar to that for prokaryotes. However, a statement made by Mahler and Cordes (1966) seans relevant here. "The very fact that a relatively simple, unified, and self-consistent model appears to have energed from these efforts might suggest that perhaps some of the gen- eralizations are overly facile and that once the problems are rexanined in search for quantitative rather than qualitative agreement, inconsis- tencies may emerge that may gnaw at the very foundation of the

magnificient edifice”.

B. Initiation

The mechanism of protein synthesis has been comprehensively described in reviews by Boulter (1970), Kaji (1970), Lucas-Lenard and Lipman (1971) and Boulter, Ellis and Yarwood (1972). It is generally believed that methionyl tRNA is the "universal initiator" in that both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells contain two species of met tRNA, one of which is used exclusively for initiation of protein synthesis while the other is used exclusively in the elongation step of protein synthesis. However, in the prokaryotic cells, formylated met tRNA is required for initiation while in the eukaryotic cells, the initiator met tRNA is not formylated. As Boulter et al. (1972) have summarized: " (a) micro-organisms contain a transformylase and a fommylatable initiating tRN Uh, (b) animals and yeast do not contain a trans-
