Latest Peripheral membrane proteins Stories
A protein pathway that may hold the secret to understanding Parkinson's disease has been discovered and explained by Iowa State University researchers.
In new research from Saint Louis University, investigators have found evidence that a toxin produced by the brain is responsible for the series of cellular events that lead to Parkinson's disease.
Researchers at the University at Buffalo have devised two new ways of "stapling" peptide helices to prevent these medically important molecules from losing their shape and degrading in the presence of enzymes.
A team of scientists from The Scripps Research Institute and the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) have developed a novel technique to observe previously unknown details of how folded structures are formed from an intrinsically disordered protein.
A team of researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, has identified an enzyme that protects against inflammation and joint destruction.
GENEVA, Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspiration Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (Inspiration) today presented pharmacokinetic (PK) data on its lead product, IB1001, a recombinant factor IX (FIX) for the treatment and prevention of bleeding in individuals with hemophilia B.
NES-ZIONA, Israel, Feb. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PROLOR Biotech, Inc., (NYSE Amex: PBTH), today reported positive results from a comparative study of its biobetter longer-acting version of the hemophilia drug Factor IX (Factor IX-CTP) in Factor IX-depleted hemophilic mice.
Under standard laboratory conditions, the human beta-defensin 1 (hBD-1), a human antibiotic naturally produced in the body, had always shown only little activity against microbes.
The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, reveals that damaged alpha-synuclein proteins (which are implicated in Parkinson's disease) can spread in a 'prion-like' manner, an infection model previously described for diseases such as BSE (mad cow disease).
In a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (Early Edition ahead of print), a team of researchers from the Kennedy Krieger Institute and four collaborating institutions, identified a new and unexpected biological pathway that appears to contribute to the development of glaucoma and its resulting vision loss.
Paneth Cells are one of four principal cell types found in the epithelium of the small intestine; the other three are the goblet cell, enterocyte, and enteroendocrine cell. Paneth cells may also be found in the cecum and appendix, although sporadically. These cells are identifiable microscopically by their location just below the intestinal stem cells in the intestinal glands. and the large eosinophilic refractile granules that occupy most of their cytoplasm. These granules consist of...
