Study finds that the transport of mRNAs into axons along with lysosomal vesicles prevents axon degeneration

RNA granules, sites for the storage, transport, and regulation of RNA molecules within cells, are transported along axons and then translated locally, far from the cell body. Recent studies suggest that these granules can “hitch a ride” from lysosome-related vesicles, membrane-bound structures in cells that share common characteristics with lysosomes.
