We welcome Susanne

We welcome Susanne Huch to our team. Susanne worked as research specialist at the Universities of Heidelberg, Arizona and Umeå. She obtained her PhD in at Umeå University. She will join our efforts to understand ribosome dynamics mRNA pos-transcriptional regulation.

We welcome Yujie

We welcome Yujie Zhang to our team. Yujie studied Viticulture and Enology at the Northwest A&F University (Shaanxi). She was awarded a CSC scholarship to perform her PhD studies at Karolinska Institutet. She will join our efforts to understand mRNA pos-transcriptional regulation.

crosstalk between ribosome biogenesis and transcription elongation

Our collaborators from Sebastian Chavez lab (Seville)  have just published a new paper showing the crosstalk between ribosome biogenesis and transcription elongation. Glad to have contributed to this story.   The ribosome assembly gene network is controlled by the feedback regulation of transcription elongation. Fernando Gómez-Herreros Thanasis Margaritis Olga Rodríguez-Galán Vicent Pelechano Victoria Begley Gonzalo Millán-Zambrano Macarena Read more about crosstalk between ribosome biogenesis and transcription elongation[…]

Using 5PSeq to unravel eIF5A dependent ribosome stalling

We have just published our first work 100% performed in our new lab at SciLifeLab-Karolinska Institutet. It has been a great collaboration with Dr. Paula Alepuz from the University of Valencia (Spain) eIF5A facilitates translation termination globally and promotes the elongation of many non polyproline-specific tripeptide sequences. Pelechano V# and Alepuz P#. Nucleic Acids Res. 2017 May 26. doi: Read more about Using 5PSeq to unravel eIF5A dependent ribosome stalling[…]
