Leah Lanier, visiting instructor of biology at Washington and Lee University, recently published an article in Nature Communications titled “Activation of Prp28 ATPase by phosphorylated Npl3 at a critical step of spliceosome remodeling.”

According to the paper’s abstract, Lanier’s research “proposes that Npl3 is a functional counterpart of the metazoan-specific Prp28 N-terminal region, which can be phosphorylated and serves as an anchor to human spliceosome.”
