Small RNAs are Big in Biology: BU Researchers Discover Unique Mechanism

Boston University researchers published a groundbreaking paper in “Molecular Cell” earlier this year, identifying a unique mechanism of guide RNA biogenesis. The paper, “Antisense Transcripts Delimit Exonucleolytic Activity of the Mitochondrial 3’ Processome to Generate Guide RNAs,” details a fundamentally novel molecular mechanism of making guide RNAs (gRNAs). This paper was authored by a team […]
