Hidden signals in RNAs regulate protein synthesis: Study finds previously unknown strategy cells use to make protein

Scientists have long known that RNA encodes instructions to make proteins. The building blocks that comprise RNA -- A, U, C, and Gs -- form a blueprint for the protein-making machinery in cells. In a new study scientists describe how the protein-making machinery identifies alternative initiation sites from which to start protein synthesis.
