Abstract

Mutations of amino acids in the C-terminal region of an archaeal toxin, aRelE, from Pyrococcus horikoshii were characterized with respect to protein synthesis inhibitory activity and 70S ribosome-binding activity. The results suggest that basic residues at the C-terminal region in aRelE play a crucial role both in 70S ribosome binding and in protein synthesis inhibition activities.
