Decades of research have yielded significant insight into the mechanism by which a cell translates an mRNA into the encoded protein. However many of the molecular details of the process remain a mystery. Translation initiation is an important control point in gene expression, and misregulation can lead to diseases such as cancer. A better understanding of the mechanism of translation initiation is imperative for the development of novel therapeutic agents. Recently, a combination of genetic… CONTINUE READING
