Take the messenger RNA train

Messenger RNAs bearing the genetic information for the synthesis of proteins are delivered to defined sites in the cell cytoplasm by molecular motors. Researchers at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and their colleagues at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) have elucidated how the motors recognize their mRNA freight. The new findings appeared in the journal ‘Nature Structural & Molecular Biology’.
