Systematic characterization of stress induced RNA granulation

Apr 6, 2018

Kwak lab publishes a paper titled "Systematic characterization of stress induced RNA granulation" with a cover illustration in the April 2018 issue of Molecular Cell, in collaboration with Jun Hee Lee lab in University of Michigan. In this paper, they identified specific mRNAs that are packaged into phase-separated cytoplasmic RNA granules in under cell stress. They found that these packed-away mRNAs are enriched with genes playing roles in cell survival and cancer.
