A multi-ribosomal structure representing a linear array of ribosomes held together by mRNA.
The configuration of several ribosomes simultaneously translating the same mRNA. Shortened form of the term polyribosome.
An mRNA molecule that is being translated by more than one ribosome at the same time.
An assembly of ribosomes actively translating the same mRNA strand into polypeptide chains.
a cluster of ribosomes connected by a strand of messenger RNA and functioning as a unit in protein synthesis.
aggregation of ribosomes.
A complex consisting of a threadlike molecule of messenger RNA and several (or many) ribosomes. The ribosomes move along the mRNA, synthesizing polypeptide chains as they proceed.
a group of several ribosomes attached to the same single mRNA molecule.
Polyribosomes are a cluster of ribosomes, bound to an m RNA molecule, first discovered and characterized by Jonathan Warner, Paul Knopf, and Alex Rich in 1963 http://www.garfield.library.upenn.edu/classics1977/A1977DV63600002.pdf. Polyribosomes read this mRNA simultaneously, helping to synthesize the same protein at different spots on the mRNA. mRNA being the "messenger" in the process of protein synthesis.
