UT Southwestern Researchers Find New Cytoplasmic Role for Proteins Linked to Neurological Diseases, Cancers
Neurological diseases such as autism, epilepsy and certain types of cancer are associated with RNA-building proteins. A potential second role for a class of these proteins has been identified and may reveal new information about these diseases. the RNA-binding fox (Rbfox) proteins oversee the translation of RNA, or mRNA, into proteins. “These data should promote a re-evaluation of those diseases to see if this new function that we’ve identified contributes to those defects,” said senior study author Dr. Michael Buszczak, Associate Professor of Molecular Biology and with the Harmon Center of Regenerative Science and Medicine at UT Southwestern.
