Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The nucleolus, for decades considered a ribosome factory and site for ribosomal RNA synthesis and processing, has recently acquired new fame. Analyses of proteins important for cell-cycle regulation have shown that this organelle is used to sequester proteins, thereby inhibiting their activity.
