La Sexta and Agencia Sinc, among other media, have published an article on the recent study by IRB Barcelona, led by ICREA researcher Lluís Ribas, who has discovered a mechanism that evolved in eukaryotic cells and that facilitates the synthesis of proteins, such as those present in the extracellular matrix. Of note, some of these proteins are highly relevant in biomedicine because of their link with diseases and greater knowledge of these molecules may bring about the development of strategies to inhibit their production, according to the authors.
