Stanford scientists directly monitor RNA polymerase (which is way cooler than it sounds)

Filed under: — adam @ 9:59 pm

They’ve perfected a technique to allow, for the first time, protein activity to be directly monitored. They’ve focused on RNA polymerase, and have proposed a mechanical action theory about how RNAP moves up the DNA chain.

The technique is directly applicable to a whole host of other biochemical processes.

That’s just incredibly cool.
