The ups and downs of making a protein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Correctly adjusting the concentrations of the over 25,000 different proteins that reside in our cells is a complex task - and finely regulated via many processes. Recent technological advances allow us now to measure these concentrations and the rates of production and degradation for the different genes and provide first insights into how much protein is made per mRNA, and how the production and degradation rates change when the cell responds to a stimulus.
