Latest Protein kinases Stories
Metformin, the drug most frequently prescribed by doctors to treat Type 2 Diabetes, works differently than previously believed -- a discovery which could lead to new treatments that have fewer side effects.
A recent study by researchers at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), published in the July 3 issue of Cell Metabolism, has identified the link between metabolic disease and cancer.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have uncovered a new signal transduction pathway specifically devoted to the regulation of alternative RNA splicing, a process that allows a single gene to produce or code multiple types of protein variants.
Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are the most common cause of genetic Parkinson's disease (PD).
Scientists at Joslin Diabetes Center have identified a key mechanism of action for the TOR (target of rapamycin) protein kinase, a critical regulator of cell growth which plays a major role in illness and aging.
A recent Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) study published in the journal Science investigating the molecular structure and function of an essential plant hormone could profoundly change our understanding of a key cell process, and might ultimately lead to the development of new drugs for a variety of diseases.
In many pharmaceutical company and university laboratories, scientists are looking closely at kinase complexes because the enzymes play key roles in essential cell functions.
