With the exception of Venture Smith, the major black, English-language, prose authors of this period had not been plantation slaves. Briton Hammon, James Gronniosaw, Ignatius Sancho, John Marrant, Ottobah Cugoano, Olaudah Equiano, and Boston King were or became mariners, preachers, musicians, soldiers and personal servants. That is to say, by chance or more often by design, they had moved into the principal upwardly, as well as geographically, mobile occupations open to enslaved Africans in Britain and America at this time. These were all occupations practiced by the free and the unfree, and by whites as well as blacks, which sometimes provided enterprising slaves with an opportunity to attain literacy and to obtain their freedom. With the exception of Briton Hammon, all these black authors published as free men. Consequently, while each depicted the evils of chattel slavery, and some openly pushed for abolition, they also offered strategies for negotiating servitude and raised the pressing issue of how, once free, black people could support themselves and their families. Where the stories about white servants in the last chapter struggled with the evils of bondage and looked out to freedom through the keyhole of running away, the narratives here look back at bondage from a perilous condition of freedom, where abject poverty and inability to find work as someone's servant were not coincidentally allied.

The ribosome decodes the genetic information, controls the fidelity of codon-anticodon interactions, and catalyzes the peptide bond formation. However, none of these functional properties can be detected in free rRNAs, because ribosomal proteins and ions are required for the attainment of the rRNA proper tertiary structure (Burma et al. 1985). Despite the fact that the binding sites of ribosomal proteins in rRNA are well characterized, our understanding of the ionic environment role in protein-rRNA interactions is still rudimentary, and few exceptions have emerged regarding the role of monovalent and divalent ions (Batey and Williamson 1998, Agalarov et al. 2000, Xing and Draper 1995, Conn et al. 1999, Drygin and Zimmermann 2000). 2b1af7f3a8
