Still Searching for Specialized Ribosomes

Dev Cell. 2019 Mar 25;48(6):744-746. doi: 10.1016/j.devcel.2019.03.005.


Reporting in Developmental Cell, Cenik et al. (2019) show that the maternal ribosome supply is sufficient for C. elegans embryonic development, arguing against tissue-specific specialized ribosomes in this context. Examination of ribosomal requirement with the genetic tool kit presented in Artiles et al. (2019) suggests a checkpoint that prevents uncoordinated growth.
