Exploring mitochondrial translation processes with the C-Trap®

This month, we find the C-Trap®  featured in Nature Communications in an article published by the lab of Dr. Joanna Rorbach in which they describe mitochondrial translation initiation. The study provides insight into a relatively unexplored, yet exciting field that investigates the properties of mitochondrial ribosomes (mitoribosomes) during translation. Understanding…

Study establishes molecular forces responsible for condensation of ribonucleoprotein-RNA complexes

Researchers investigated the molecular driving forces underlying the condensation and decondensation of ribonucleoproteins using the C-Trap™. Specifically, they showed that sequence-dependent features of the RNA and ribonucleoprotein molecules partially dictate phase transitions. These findings can help scientists further understand the properties underlying eukaryotic liquid-liquid phase separation, or formation of membrane-less…
