The small subunit is on the left. X-ray structure of the 70S ribosome []. Cryo-EM map of the 70S ribosome []. Cryo-EM map of the yeast 80S ribosome []. Expansion regions are darker. The dashed line indicates a flat surface that suggests eukaryotic specialization of 60S subunit for association with a planar membrane. Cryo-EM map of the mammalian mitochondrial ribosome [].
