The Growing Toolbox for Protein Synthesis Studies

Protein synthesis stands at the last stage of the central dogma of molecular biology, providing a final regulatory layer for gene expression. Reacting to environmental cues and internal signals, the translation machinery can quickly tune the translatome from a pre-existing pool of RNAs, before the transcriptome changes. Although the translation reaction itself has been known since the 1950s, the quantitative or even qualitative measurement of its efficacy in cells has posed experimental and analytic hurdles. In this review, we outline the array of state-of-the-art methods that have emerged to tackle the hidden aspects of translational control.
