Dynamics of mRNA entry into stress granules

Chih-Yung Lee, Geraldine Seydoux

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stressed eukaryotic cells store mRNAs in protein-rich condensates called stress granules. Using single-molecule tracking techniques to examine how mRNAs enter stress granules, a new study shows that mRNAs make transient contacts with the granule surface before stable association, and become largely immobile after entry.
