A better model for the interpretation of protein hydrogen exchange data

When studying stability and folding of proteins hydrogen exchange substitution is a very important technique. However, the interpretation of the data is complicated by electrostatic effects and the magnitude of these has not been accounted for until now. Mulder et al. have now shown a way to better foretell these effects and thereby provide a key…

New long-read sequencing technology reveals the surprising complexity of circular RNAs

A paper from Jørgen Kjems and colleagues published in Nature Communications presents a new method to determine the full-length sequence and isoform variation of a class of RNAs called circular RNAs. The study is conducted in human and mouse brains and shows that many circRNAs exist in a large number of different version and that a special class of…
