Phase Transition of a Disordered Nuage Protein Generates Environmentally Responsive Membraneless Organelles


Cells chemically isolate molecules in compartments to both facilitate and regulate their interactions. In addition to membrane-encapsulated compartments, cells can form proteinaceous and membraneless organelles, including nucleoli, Cajal and PML bodies, and stress granules. The principles that determine when and why these structures form have remained… (More)
