Protein "Intentionally" Terminates own Synthesis by Destabilizing Synthesis Machinery — the Ribosome

The ribosome becomes destabilized by the protein (nascent chain) it itself synthesized (IRD) and splits apart into the large and small subunits. As a result, the protein synthesis ends mid-cycle without reaching the end point. Credit: Hidekii Taguchi.

Protein Therapy Boosts Spinal Cord Regeneration in Mice

News

Restoring the ability to walk following spinal cord injury requires neurons in the brain to reestablish communication pathways with neurons in the spinal cord, Mature neurons, however, are unable to regenerate their axons to facilitate this process. New research in mice shows one potential route to overcome this limitation may be by targeting liver kinase B1 (LKB1) protein.
