Akira Kaji is a Professor of Microbiology, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. He contributed to the deciphering of genetic code by his discovery of the fact that the complex of poly-U with ribosome binds specifically tRNA specific for phenylalanine. He has also discovered RRF.
Abstract : In vivo studies with overlapping ORF junction reveal that the major function of RRF (ribosome recycling factor) is to release ribosomes from the termination codon of post-termination complex
