Regulation of tumorigenic splicing by protein condensates with specific biophysical properties

Academic Article


  • The role of biophysical properties of protein condensates in regulating gene expression and tumorigenesis remains unclear. We recently discovered that A-kinase anchoring protein 8 (AKAP8, also known as AKAP95), a RNA splicing regulator, supports tumorigenesis by forming liquid-like condensates, and that perturbing the biophysical properties of the condensates impairs its activity in regulating splicing and tumorigenesis.
