Synthesis at the Speed of Codons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The possibility that different mRNA sequences encoding identical peptides are translated dissimilarly has long been of great interest. Recent work by Yu and co-workers provides striking evidence that mRNA sequences influence the rate of protein synthesis, and lends support to the emerging idea that mRNA sequence informs protein folding.
