Researchers have captured ribosomes translating messenger RNA expressed from the maternally inherited mitochondrial genome. Utilizing the latest advances in cryo-electron microscopy, the group discovered a novel mechanism that mitochondrial ribosomes use for the synthesis and delivery of newly made proteins to prevent premature misfolding. Disruptions to protein folding can lead to devastating human diseases.
