• Stress-induced changes in genetic information: New details discovered about the function of a mysterious protein

    3 monthes ago - By ScienceDaily

    Scientists have researched the function of an enigmatic protein. The biological necessity of this protein, which can chemically alter certain building blocks of the genetic information, has been debated for quite a while. The new study now links the enzymatic action of this protein on small RNA molecules which are important for protein synthesis, to potentially far-reaching consequences for the integrity of genetic information, particularly under stress conditions.
