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[…]

Principes of eukaryotic RNA metabolism

We want to congratulate our collaborators from Sandelin and Jensen Lab for leading this great paper in Nature Genetics. This is a great example of how to combine different genome-wide methodologies to improve our understanding of the transcriptome organization. Proud of our contribution to this work. Principles for RNA metabolism and alternative transcription initiation within Read more about Principes of eukaryotic RNA metabolism[…]
