Background: Ribosomal PTC acts as a protein folding modulator in vivo and in vitro. Results: A fixed set of nucleotides in the PTC interacts to fold polypeptides in vivo and in vitro. Conclusion: Folding all proteins through interaction with the same set of nucleotides in PTC implies they have intrinsic homology. Significance: Hundreds of proteins showed an identical cumulative hydrophobicity plot for amino acids.
