*General schematic representation of the elongation cycle of a translating 
ribosome.* Each cycle results in (i) elongation of a growing peptide chain by 
one amino acid residue (formation of one peptide bond), (ii) hydrolysis of 
two GTP molecules, (iii) entry of one molecule of aminoacyl (/Aa/)-tRNA into 
intersubunit channel, (iv) exit of one molecule of deacylated tRNA from the 
intersubunit channel, and (v) movement of mRNA chain by three nucleotides 
toward the 3′-end. Here, as well as in Figs. 3–5, ribosomal particles are 
shown in the orientation in which the small subunit (/yellow/) is on the top 
and the large subunit (/red/) is on the bottom. The head of the small subunit 
and the central protuberance of the large subunit are facing the viewer, with 
the L7/L12 stalk of the large subunit directed to the left. In this 
orientation, the bound L-like tRNAs must face the viewer by their external 
angles (“elbows”), as in reality they are facing the head of the small 
subunit; however, here, as well as in Figs. 3–5, for the sake of better 
discerning between the A and P site tRNAs, the external angles of their 
symbolical depictions (/green/) are shown to be drawn apart. The intersubunit 
channel accommodating the mRNA and tRNAs is traced by /dotted lines/. A and P 
are the tRNA-binding sites on the small subunit, and /a/, /p/, and /e/ are 
the binding sites for their 3′ termini, either acylated or deacylated, on 
the large subunit. (For the sake of better clarity, the subsites on the small 
subunit are designated by capital letters, A and P, as originally proposed 
and usually accepted (59, 94), whereas the large subunit subsites, which are 
localized within a small area of the PTC and nearby, are designated by 
lowercase italicized letters, /a/ and /p/, as proposed elsewhere (92).)

The bicyclic cascade that regulates GS activity. Interrelationship between 
the cyclic interconversion of the regulatory protein between uridylylated 
(PII(UMP)4) and unuridylylated (PII) forms, and the cyclic interconversion of 
GS between adenylylated (GS(AMP)12) and unadenylylated forms, and the 
reciprocal control of these interconversions by l-glutamine (Gln) and 
α-ketoglutarate (α-KG). ATa and ATd denote the adenylylation and 
deadenylylation sites of adenylyltransferase, respectively; UTd and UTudenote 
the deuridylylation and uridylylation sites of uridylyltransferase, 
respectively. Reprinted with permission from Rhee et al. (Rhee, S. G.,
