Translation initiation in bacteria and eukaryotes begins when the small ribosomal subunit binds near the 5’ end of mRNA and identifies the start codon sequence. The tRNA carrying the amino acids binds to the start codon, and the large subunit joins the small subunit to form an intact ribosome. What two molecules are necessary for translation initiation and ribosome formation?
