Unique Role From An Transported Molecule

Researchers reported a basic science finding that might someday lead to better treatments for neurodegenerative diseases like a hereditary form of Lou Gehrig's disease. Their work identifies details in how molecules bind to each other for transport into the nucleus of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Proper binding and transport appear essential for the protein named FUS. The study was published in the journal Cell.
