A pathway to the design of even more effective versions of the powerful anti-cancer drug Taxol has been opened with the most detailed look ever at the assembly and disassembly of microtubules, tiny fibers of tubulin protein that form the cytoskeletons of living cells and play a crucial role in mitosis.
SEATTLE, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Known for its advocacy of intelligent design, Discovery Institute has released
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.
Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the Study by Erkan Tuzel and Scientists at UMass Amherst Provides New Insights into a Cellular System Whose Failure Can Lead to
Recently biologists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst led by Wei-lih Lee have identified a new molecular player in asymmetric cell division, a regulatory protein named She1 whose role in chromosome- and spindle positioning wasn't known before.
Researchers from the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Gothenburg have managed for the first time to obtain detailed information about the role of the protein metastasin in the spread of tumor cells.
A new study in the Journal of General Physiology (www.jgp.org) uses state-of-the-art fluorescence microscopy to provide a striking 3-D picture of how class V myosins (myoV) "walk" along their actin track.
Just like people, some proteins have characteristic ways of "walking," which (also like human gaits) are not so easy to describe.
Scientists from the Cluster of Excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich have now succeeded in building a simple model system consisting of only three components to study the laws of such so-called absorbing states.
Interdisciplinary research between biology and physics aims to understand the cell and how it organizes internally.
