A team led by a University of Miami researcher is creating the first map of protein interactions within neurons, in a live organism University of Miami biology professor Akira Chiba is leading a multidisciplinary team to develop the first systematic survey of protein interactions within brain cells. The team is aiming to reconstruct genome-wide in situ protein-protein interaction networks (isPIN) within the neurons of a multicellular organism. Preliminary data were presented at the...

Discovery of subcellular processing location and target signal of cyclotide kalata B1 Many plants produce compounds that serve as a defense against predators or pathogens. Some are also used by humans for a variety of beneficial purposes, such as in medicines. As recently as the early 1990s, a unique class of proteins previously unknown to science, the cyclotides, was discovered. First noted through African tribal use as a tea given to speed up delivery during childbirth, cyclotides have...

Research presented at ASCB annual meeting New fluorescent labeling technology that distinguishes in a single image the population size and spatial distribution of 15 different taxa has uncovered new taxon pairings that indicate unsuspected cooperation -- and standoffishness -- between members of the microbe biofilm that covers teeth, according to a presentation on Dec. 7, at the American Society for Cell Biology's Annual Meeting in Denver. Members of the genera Prevotella and...

Biologists have long known that organisms from bacteria to humans use the 24 hour cycle of light and darkness to set their biological clocks. But exactly how these clocks are synchronized at the molecular level to perform the interactions within a population of cells that depend on the precise timing of circadian rhythms is less well understood. To better understand that process, biologists and bioengineers at UC San Diego created a model biological system consisting of glowing, blinking...

American Peptide Company recently began a collaboration with Sandia Biotech to synthesize peptides to be used in their Split Green Fluorescent Protein (sGFP) detection system. Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) August 04, 2011 American Peptide Company recently began a collaboration with Sandia Biotech to synthesize peptides to be used in their Split Green Fluorescent Protein (sGFP) detection system. The split GFP technology consists of a 16 amino acid fusion tag and a complementary protein to detect the...

New technology called 'Spinach,' modeled after Nobel Prize"“winning green fluorescent protein The ability to tag proteins with a green fluorescent light to watch how they behave inside cells so revolutionized the understanding of protein biology that it earned the scientific teams who developed the technique Nobel Prizes in 2008. Now, researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have developed a similar fluorescent tool that can track the mysterious workings of the various forms of...

Two researchers working for Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a laser from a single living cell, by engineering it to produce a light-emitting protein that was first obtained from glowing jellyfish. The development, set to appear in the journal Nature Photonics, was worked on by researchers Malte Gather, PhD, and Seok Hyun Yun, PhD. They described that flooding the genetically engineered cells with weak blue light caused them to emit directed,...

In work published in the June 2011 issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine, Kolossov, Spring and their co-investigators - a multidisciplinary team within the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois - have transferred the concept of redox-sensitive Green Fluorescent Proteins (GFPs) to a quantitative Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) imaging platform. For the FRET-based sensors, a change in redox induces a conformational change in a redox-sensitive switch that...

UCSD scientists modify plant protein to provide a way to see the previously unseen Modifying a protein from a plant much favored by science, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and colleagues have created a new type of genetic tag visible under an electron microscope, illuminating life in never-before-seen detail. Led by Nobel laureate Roger Tsien, PhD, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator and UCSD professor of pharmacology, chemistry and...

Proteins are the most important functional biomolecules in nature with numerous applications in life science research, biotechnology and medicine. So how can they be modified in the most effective way to attain certain desired properties? In the past, the modifications were usually carried out either chemically or via genetic engineering. The team of Professor Arne Skerra from the TUM Chair of Biological Chemistry has now developed a more elegant combined solution: By extending the otherwise...

The Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). It is a popular aquarium fish, where it is frequently sold under the trade name Zebra danio, and is also an important model organism. Characteristics The zebrafish arose in the Ganges region in Eastern India and is also native to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar. It commonly inhabits streams, canals, ditches, ponds and slow-moving to stagnant water bodies, including rice fields. The...
