Thomas A. Steitz, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, and Ada E. Yonath awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome.
Prestigious award recognizes Steitz's pioneering work on the structure of the ribosome.
HHMI researchers obtain high-resolution images of the ribosome and show that it can act as a ribozyme.
HHMI investigators have produced an image of the active form of the HIV enzyme reverse transcriptase. This work may clarify how mutations render HIV resistant to antiviral drugs.
