Senior Science Editor
The small molecule PF-06446846 selectively blocked the translation of PCSK9 messenger RNA, showing that the ribosome can be targeted in a protein-specific manner. Researchers from the University of California Berkeley and Pfizer Inc. reported the findings in the March 21, 2017, online issue of PLoS Biology.
