THE EXQUISITE CHOREOGRAPHY OF TRANSLATION INITIATION

picture of man smilingTranslation is the last step of gene expression and a point of extensive regulation. How an mRNA is chosen to be translated, how a translation start site is found at the 5’ end of an mRNA and how translation gets started at the correct site all remain a mystery, veiled by the dynamic nature of the process and myriad factors that guide it. We have developed and applied single-molecule approaches merged with structural methods to observe and animate this process in higher organisms.
