Welcome to the Steitz Lab
Noncoding RNA-protein complexes (ncRNPs) are ubiquitous in eukaryotic cells and inhabit specific cellular compartments. The most famous noncoding nuclear RNPs (snRNPs) participate in pre-mRNA splicing by recognizing important intron signals and assembling to form an active splicing complex called a spliceosome. There are many other kinds, including those where the RNA is made by an infecting virus.
@SteitzLab Retweeted @VirusesImmunityInterferons (IFNs) are potent antiviral factors produced in response to virus infections. Viruses have an arsenal of countermeasures to block IFNs. IFNs can even be harmful if they are induced too little too late. Check out our review by @annsea_park 👇🏽 https://t.co/hWhPB1foLU6 MONTHS AGO
