In addition to ribosomal proteins, other proteins involved in translation, including peptidases (aminopeptidase C, aminopeptidase N, dipeptidase, peptidase T, proline dipeptidase, prolidase, and Xaa-Pro aminopeptidase), aminoacyl tRNA synthetases (arginyl-tRNA synthetase, isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase beta chain, seryltRNA synthetase, threonyl-tRNA synthetase, and tyrosyltRNA synthetase), translation factors (elongation factors G, P, Ts, and Tu, translation initiation factor IF-1, and ribosome recycling factor), and proteins involved in modification (peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase), were identified in the proteomes from both growth phases.
