Archaeon ribosome. Molecular model showing the structure of a 50S (large) ribosome from the archaeon Haloarcula marismortui. Ribosomes are composed of protein and RNA (ribonucleic acid). Each ribosome consists of a small (30S) subunit and a large (50S) subunit. They are the site of translation, the process of protein synthesis.
