Passing Through

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

mRNAs move to the right place in cells to facilitate localized translation. The pathway of mRNA movement involves nuclear and cytoplasmic puncta not surrounded by investing membranes. Discoveries reported by Hondele et al. explain how mRNA molecules can be passed from one puncta to another, forming a relay that directs mRNAs to their proper location.
