Thanks to an interdisciplinary team of researchers, scientists now have a more complete understanding of one of the human bodyâ€™s most vital structures: the red blood cell.
Location, location, location determines a protein's role.
For the first time, researchers have created a way to implant an inorganic device into a cell wall without damaging it.
A Brazilian scorpion has provided researchers at North Carolina State University and East Carolina University insight into venomâ€™s effects on the ability of certain cells to release critical components.
To engineer better, more productive crops and develop new drugs to combat disease, scientists look at how the sensor-laden membranes surrounding cells control nutrient and water uptake, secrete toxins, and interact with the environment and neighboring cells to affect growth and development.
A team of researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley has shown that the biochemical activity of a cellular protein system, which plays a key role in cancer metastasis, can be altered by the application of a direct physical force.
Max Planck scientists develop new strategy to play major role in research on human diseases.
A new technique to study protein dynamics in living cells has been created by a team of University of Illinois scientists, and evidence yielded from the new method indicates that an in vivo environment strongly modulates a protein's stability and folding rate.
Humans and animals are able to perceive even the slightest vibration and touch of the skin. Mechanosensitive ion channels play a crucial role in the mediation of these sensations.
