Coping with stress by regulating tRNAs

Sci Signal. 2018 Sep 4;11(546):eaau1098. doi: 10.1126/scisignal.aau1098.


Stress conditions curtail the energetically costly process of messenger RNA translation. In this issue of Science Signaling, Torrent et al. report key evidence for a direct link between codon usage and translation regulation in response to stress.
