dead link[edit]

The first external link seems to be broken. Please remove the following: 70S Ribosome Architecture Animation of a working ribosome. Requires the Chime browser plugin from this site (where registration is required). Iakov Davydov (talk) 08:47, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for spotting this. I have removed the link. Graham Colm (talk) 11:06, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Ribosome structure[edit]

I suggest to move the whole section on structure to a new page. There is plenty of more information to be incorporated, so this will eventually become unwieldy. Peteruetz (talk) 14:52, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Ribosome: structure and function, molecular device/machine[edit]

I just found a good review about these aspects of ribosome: [1] Kazkaskazkasako (talk) 18:19, 19 September 2014 (UTC)


This non sequitur at the end of the structure section has been deleted for lack of context or explanation and weasel wording.

"It should be noted that the production of the component parts of the ribosome from a messenger RNA molecule is rather strongly isomorphic with the self-replication model of von Neumann." (talk) 22:26, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

I agree with you. It's also tantamount to gibberish. Graham Beards (talk) 22:53, 6 January 2015 (UTC)


Shouldn't "intercellular" in "Ribosomes are often embedded in the intercellular membranes that make up the rough endoplasmic reticulum" be replaced by "intracellular"? --Seadogburger (talk) 11:46, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, thank you for pointing this out. Graham Beards (talk) 17:15, 1 November 2015 (UTC)


Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Ribosome/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

The first sentence should not say " all cells." Mature reb blood cells (erythrocytes) have no nucleus and no DNA and, hence, no RNA or ribosomes. (talk) 18:44, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
