Toxins that Trash Translation

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Culviner and Laub (2018) use RNA-seq and ribosome profiling to determine how MazF inhibits translation in E. coli. Challenging an earlier model, they argue that MazF cleaves mRNA and blocks ribosome biogenesis but does not generate specialized ribosomes that preferentially translate leaderless transcripts.
