Another manuscript accepted…

Nucleic Acids Research just accepted another manuscript for publication to which we have contributed. In an experimental effort headed by our colleague Sébastien Ferreira-Cerca (University of Regensburg, Biochemistry III), the function of the atypical Rio kinases in ribosomal smal subunit (SSU) biogenesis and maturation was addressed in Archea. This revealed activation of Rio2 by an ancient and conserved mechanism involving ribosomal RNA that stimulates release of the kinase from the nascent 40S particle. Watch out for the next NAR table of contents: there you should find a link to the manuscript, once it is out!
