Not Just a Phase for RNAS

Dallas, TX — A phenomenon in which an RNA named NORAD drives a protein named Pumilio to form liquid droplets in cells, much like oil in water, appears to tightly regulate the activity of Pumilio. A...

Super-Resolution RNA Imaging in Live Cells

Heidelberg, Germany — Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is key to various fundamental biological processes. It transfers genetic information, translates it into proteins or supports gene regulation. To achieve...

New Technique Reveals Switches in RNA

Groningen, Netherlands — Scientists at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands), in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Torino (Italy), have developed a method to visualize and...

RNA Structures by the Thousands

Bochum, Germany — Researchers from Bochum and Münster have developed a new method to determine the structures of all RNA molecules in a bacterial cell at once. In the past, this had to be done individually...

New Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Mapped Out

Daejeon, South Korea — Jean and Peter Medawar wrote in 1977 that a virus is “simply a piece of bad news wrapped up in proteins.” The “bad news” in the SARS-CoV-2 case is the...

Characterizing RNA Alterations in Cancer

Heidelberg, Germany — Researchers at EMBL-EBI were among the leaders of a large international consortium that carried out a joint analysis of data from over 1000 donors of more than 25 cancer types,...

Unlocking Secret of Cell Regulation

Bonn, Germany — Ribonucleic acids (RNA) ensure that the blueprint in the cell nucleus is translated into vital proteins and that cell functions are regulated. However, little is known about the structure...

Cells’ Springy Coils Pump Bursts of RNA

Houston, TX — In your cells, it’s almost always spring. Or at least springy.  Bioscientists have known for some time that chromosomes tend to express their protein products in bursts, rather...
