Cation trafficking is essential for both nucleic acid synthesis and degradationWei YangLaboratory of Molecular Biology, NIDDK, National Institutes of Health, USAEnzyme catalysis has been studied for over a century. How it actually occurs has not been visualized until recently. By combining in crystallo catalysis with X-ray diffraction analysis of reaction intermediates, we have observed the processes of DNA synthesis and RNA degradation at unprecedented atomic details. Contrary to the canonical view [...]
