A first view of shape-shifting movements in membrane transporters; hailed as a breakthrough in understanding membrane transport, research may lead to better treatments for depression and substance abuse.
Understanding how mixtures of proteins assemble and how to manipulate them in the laboratory has many exciting biomedical applications, such as providing scaffolds for the engineering of tissues that can replace diseased or damaged human tissues.
A team of University of Toronto chemists have made a major contribution to the emerging field of quantum biology, observing quantum mechanics at work in photosynthesis in marine algae.
University of Michigan researchers have shown that tension on DNA molecules can affect gene expression---the process at the heart of biological function that tells a cell what to do.
Single-molecule, real-time measurements of a key biological process.
Editors say the new mission statement and shift in editorial criteria are in response to changing nature of biological research BETHESDA, Md., Jan.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have discovered a molecular security system in human cells that deactivates and degrades foreign DNA.
Members of a Syracuse University research team have shown that an obscure phenomenon called stochastic resonance (SR) can improve the clarity of signals in systems such as radar, sonar and even radiography, used in medical clinics to detect signs of breast cancer.
A new study reveals how molecular motors that power important subcellular movements can generate cyclical motion.
For the first time, experimental evidence shows that hidden protein structures are essential for catalysis.
The Biophysical Journal is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published biweekly by Cell Press on behalf of the Biophysical Society. It was established in 1960. The editor-in-chief is Edward Egelman. It covers all aspects of biophysics. It is the leading international journal for original research in molecular, cellular, and system biophysics. Modern biophysics is a broad and rapidly advancing field encompassing the study of biological structures with a focus on mechanisms at the...
The European Biophysics Journal is a scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the European Biophysical Societies Association. Published works occur in the field of biophysics (the study of biological phenomena using physical methods and concepts). It publishes original papers, reviews and letters. The editor-in-chief is Anthony Watts of University of Oxford. Areas of research that are frequently published in the journal include: structure and dynamics of...
