Our collaboration with the lab of Don Cleveland describing how TDP-43 and HSP70 phase separate into anisotropic, intranuclear liquid spherical annuli is now published after peer review in Science (see preprint here). We’re happy to have contributed to this exciting work. Congratulations Digvijay on capturing these phase separated compartments in the nucleus using cryo-ET!
