Paper Abstract

In Shannon's information theory, noise is mathematically identical to entropy. The point of this comment is to highlight the role of noise suppression in the ribosome transition state (TS) reaction. When the rRNA of the ribosome peptidyl transfer center (PTC) is considered along with the reactants which pass through it, enthalpy but also, noise suppression, contributes to the catalysis of the TS reaction.
