We have investigated possible interaction sites for mRNA, tRNA. translation factors and the nascent peptide on 5S, 5.8S and 28S rRNA in in vivo assembled translational active mouse ribosomes by comparing the chemical footprinting patterns derived from native polysomes, salt-washed polysomes (mainly lacking translational factors) and salt-washed runoff ribosomes (lacking mRNA, tRNA and translational factors). Several ligand-induced footprints were observed in 28S rRNA while no reactivity changes were seen in 5S and 5.8S rRNA. Footprints derived from mRNA, tRNA and/or the nascent peptide chain were observed in domain I of 28S rRNA (hairpin 23), in domain II (helix 37/38 and helices 42 and 43 and in the eukaryotic expansion segment 15), in domain IV (helices 67 and 74) and in domain V (helices 94 and 96 and in the peptidyl transferase ring). Some of the protected sites were homologous to sites previously suggested to be involved in mRNA. tRNA and/or peptide binding in in vitro assembled prokaryotic complexes. Additional footprints were located in regions that have not previously been found involved in ligand binding. Part of these sites could derive from the nascent peptide in the exit channel of the ribosome.
