Tokyo, Nov 25, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Researchers at Waseda University in Japan have for the first time directly observed the "molecular motor", called Xkid, that plays a critical role in facilitating
Tiny self-assembling transport networks, powered by nano-scale motors and controlled by DNA, have been developed by scientists at Oxford University and Warwick University.
Just like people, some proteins have characteristic ways of "walking," which (also like human gaits) are not so easy to describe.
Interdisciplinary research between biology and physics aims to understand the cell and how it organizes internally.
The transport system inside living cells is a well-oiled machine with tiny protein motors hauling chromosomes, neurotransmitters and other vital cargo around the cell.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified the motors that move non-infectious prion proteins (PrPC) â€“ found within many mammalian cells â€“ up and down long, neuronal transport pathways.
Rice University bioengineers measure pulling power of hitched pairs of protein motors.
A University of Utah researcher helped discover how a "wimpy" protein motor works with two other proteins to gain the strength necessary to move nerve cells and components inside them.
Researchers at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center have figured out how ATP is broken down in cells, providing for the first time a clear picture of the key reaction that allows cells in all living things to function and flourish.
