summary

UT Southwestern researchers have identified a four-protein complex that appears to play a key role in generating ribosomes—organelles that serve as protein factories for cells—as well as a surprising part in neurodevelopmental disorders. These findings, published in Cell Reports, could lead to new ways to manipulate ribosome production, which could impact a variety of conditions that affect human health.
