Yale postdoctoral fellow Mauricio Pontes has discovered a genetic “program” that enables cells to make functioning ribosomes even when magnesium is scarce.
- October 13, 2016
Ribosomes are the cellular machines that make proteins, the molecules that carry out the majority of life’s functions. To make ribosomes, cells need to make an abundance of amino acids (the raw material of proteins) and adenosine triphosphate (ATP, the energy currency required to run the ribosome). However, the assembly of functional ribosomes also requires magnesium.
