Science Talk: Tracking mRNA in Living Cells
September 15, 2010 – Einstein researcher Robert Singer, Ph.D., discusses a breakthrough in microscopy that is allowing scientists to track messenger RNA in living cells in real time. The study, published in the September 15 online edition of Nature, marks a major advance in the use of microscopes for scientific investigation and the findings could lead to treatments for a variety of disorders, such as myotonic dystrophy, in which mRNA gets stuck inside the nucleus of cells.
