New Technology Sheds Light on Dynamic RNA-Protein Interactions

More than 80% of the human genome is transcribed, generating a large ensemble of nascent RNA that is co-transcriptionally packaged by RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). This vast genomic output raises an important question – where and when do RBPs associate to direct all of these transcripts into their appropriate processing/export or turnover pathways? Researchers from Denmark and Scotland now address this question in a new article in Nature Communications.
