Emotions, popularly seated in the heart, shift with the alternative stimuli of love, hate and emotion.
Molecules that selectively interfere with protein production can stop human cells from making the abnormal molecules that cause Huntingtonâ€™s disease, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found.
New details of the composition and structure of a needlelike protein complex on the surface of certain bacteria may help scientists develop new strategies to thwart infection.
Biomedical engineers have developed a new type of probe that allows them to visualize single ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules within live cells more easily than existing methods.
A new study of proteins, the molecular machines that drive all life, also sheds light on the history of living organisms.
A new way to direct chemical modifications to specific sites on recombinant proteins â€“ including the monoclonal antibodies so important in the pharmaceutical industry â€“ has been developed by Carolyn Bertozzi and her colleagues at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley.
Findings may lead to novel treatments for diseases resistant to current RNAi
Two molecular biologists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have uncovered important new details about how a gene mutation causes a cellular editing error that results in a devastating disease called pontocerebellar hypoplasia (PCH).
The Stowers Institute's Baumann Lab has discovered an important step in the maturation pathway of telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes the sequences that are lost at chromosome ends with every cell division. The findings were published today in the Advance Online Publication of Nature. Telomerase is viewed as a promising cancer treatment target because its inhibition selectively kills cancer cells. In order to identify small molecules that block telomerase, it is...
