Membraneless organelles are liquid condensates, which form through liquid-liquid phase separation. Recent advances show that phase separation is essential for cellular homeostasis by regulating basic cellular processes, including transcription and signal transduction. The reported number of proteins with the capacity

We report that the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein (N-protein) undergoes liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) with viral RNA. N-protein condenses with specific RNA genomic elements under physiological buffer conditions and condensation is enhanced at human body temperatures (33°C and 37°C) and reduced

Synthetic oligonucleotides are increasingly used because of their potential activity as regulators of gene expression. One of their major drawbacks is instability toward nucleases, in particular exonucleases. In this article, we studied some terminal modifications that can enhance exonuclease resistance

We reported previously that 2,5-hexanedione (2,5-HD), the neurotoxic metabolite of methyl-n-butylketone (MnBK) and n-hexane, induced aggregation of intermediate filaments of the vimentin type in cultured fibroblasts. To determine if these findings have relevance to the mechanism by which these hexacarbons
