Nucleophosmin holds it all together, the smart glue of the nucleolus

Conformational changes in nucleophosmin

The nucleolus is an organelle that serves as a factory for ribosome production and a stress sensor in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells. Unlike the nucleus, the nucleolus is not surrounded by a membrane. Instead, the nucleolus

Varity of phase separation patterns induced by a propagating trigger

A pattern is formed when a phase separation in two component mixtures occurs. A bicontinuous network pattern is formed when the concentration of the two phases are symmetry to the phase separation line. Meanwhile, when there is
