Scientists uncover molecular mechanism of RNA-mediated organelle contact sites and regulation mechanism of cholesterol metabolism

As an important carrier of material and energy metabolism, the ordinated modulation of organelle-associated molecules are vital for proper cellular and systemic functions. For example, sterol-regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs), located on the surface of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), can rapidly sense changes in intracellular lipid levels, modulate the rate…
