The task force that rescues stalled ribosomes in bacteria.

Abstract : In bacteria, the main quality control mechanism for rescuing ribosomes that have arrested during translation is trans-translation, performed by transfer-mRNA (tmRNA) associated with small protein B (SmpB). Intriguingly, this very elegant mechanism is not always necessary to maintain cell viability, suggesting the existence of alternatives. Other rescue systems have recently been discovered, revealing a far more complicated story than expected. These include the alternative ribosome rescue factors ArfA and ArfB, the elongation factors EF4 and EF-P, the peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase Pth, and several protein synthesis factors. These discoveries make it possible to describe a large network of factors dedicated to ribosome rescue, thus ensuring cell survival during stresses that induce ribosome stalling.
