... separation (LLPS). IDRs are frequently found to be enriched in phase-separated compartments. Due to this observation, the presence of an IDR in a protein is frequently assumed to be diagnostic of its ability to phase separate. In this review, we clarify the role of IDRs in biological assembly and explore...

... that terminate filament growth. In vitro and in initial descriptions of cellular phenomena [ 11 ], the formation of condensates has been explored analogous to passive phase separation, which does not require the consumption of a chemical energy source such as ATP. However, active processes triggering...

... between R-DPRs and aberrations in liquid–liquid phase separation (LLPS). In this review, we showcase several potential mechanisms by which R-DPRs disrupt various phase-separated compartments to elicit deleterious neurodegeneration. We also discuss potential therapeutic strategies to counter R-DPR toxicity...

...M. Sankaranarayanan; Timothy T. Weil Drosophila eggs are highly polarised cells that use RNA–protein complexes to regulate storage and translational control of maternal RNAs. Ribonucleoprotein granules are a class of biological condensates that form predominantly by intracellular phase separation...

Transcription initiates within or at the surface of these phase-separated droplets and the phosphorylation of Pol II, associated with transcription initiation and elongation, dissociates Pol II from these domains leading to engagement...
