Hitchhiking: mRNA transport system in brain cells revealed

Neuroscience News logo for mobile.

Summary: Researchers have made significant progress in understanding how mRNA is distributed in brain cells. They found that a protein complex called FERRY helps early endosomes (EEs) transport mRNAs to distant parts of the neuron. Using cryo-electron microscopy, they elucidated the structure of FERRY and how it binds to mRNAs. These findings could deepen our … Read more
