Reversible Control of RNA Splicing by Photoswitchable Small Molecules

We demonstrated the potential of photopharmacology modulation in splicing, tweaking the current optochemical toolkit. Our work pioneers a reversible approach to regulate RNA splicing within primary patient-derived cells by synthetic photoswitches. Read more here J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2023, accepted You cannot imagine how happy we are and what this means for our small lab!! […]
