Study period:1998 - 2002
Research overview:
Ribosomes, which are cell components common to all living organisms, are closely involved in protein synthesis. However, our results show that the function of ribosomes is not limited to protein synthesis: they have a range of additional functions. Currently, based on this knowledge, we are actively working to establish and develop "ribosome engineering", a technology for controlling the cell's physiological functions by artificially manipulating quantitative or qualitative changes in ribosomes.
