Ribosome – dark

Free illustration of a ribosome as a surface model with indicated ribbon model on a dark background. Ribosomes are macromolecular complexes in the cytoplasm of cells where proteins are produced. Ribosomes translate the nucleotide sequence of an mRNA into the amino acid sequence of the polypeptide chain of a protein. – Illustration based on structural data from Voorhees, R.M., Weixlbaumer, A., Loakes, D., Kelley, A.C., Ramakrishnan, V.
