Ribosomes are generally thought of as molecular machines with a constitutive rather than regulatory role during protein synthesis. A study by Slavov et al. [1] now shows that ribosomes of distinct composition and functionality exist within eukaryotic cells, giving credence to the concept of ‘specialized’ ribosomes.
