Scientists Develop the First Known Methyl Transferase Ribozyme

The schematically shown ribozyme (green) binds to the target RNA (blue) by base pairing and installs the methyl group (red flag) at a defined site of a selected adenine. The reaction product m1A is shown in the red circle. Credit: Claudia Hoebartner / University of Wuerzburg.

CRISPRi Screens Reveal Sources of Metabolic Robustness in E. coli

News

A massively parallel CRISPRi screen demonstrated that E. coli metabolism is very robust against knockdowns of enzymes, and multi-omics data revealed the mechanisms behind it. In the future, the researchers want to apply this knowledge to build better models of metabolism, which enable rational-design of industrial microbes.
