    ..Our findings provide the structural basis for purely RNA-driven elongation arrest in prokaryotes, and give insights into the structural adaption of SRP RNA during evolution. ..

    ..Our findings add to the current understanding of SRP GTPases and may challenge previous studies that did not consider homodimerization of FtsY. ..

    ..Our data provide a structural model for 5S RNP recruitment to the pre-60S particle and explain why removal of Rpf2-Rrs1 is necessary for rearrangements to drive 60S maturation. ..

    ..Structural analyses of the GDP-bound, post-hydrolysis states reveal a conserved, magnesium-sensitive switch within the I-box. Overall, we provide a general model for SRP cycle regulation by RNA. ..

    ..We define the GTPase switch cycle of SRβ and identify specific differences to the Arf and Sar1 families with implications for GTPase regulation. Our data allow a better integration of SRβ into the scheme of protein targeting. ..

    ..Under these mutant conditions, it becomes clear that an intact Erb1-Ytm1 complex is required for 60S maturation and that loss of this stable interaction prevents ribosome production. ..

    ..Docking of the S domain structure into cryo-electron microscopy density maps reveals multiple contact sites between SRP68/72 and the ribosome, and explains the role of SRP72 in the SRP pathway. ..
