Latest Protein structure Stories
José Onuchic has become an expert at connecting the dots, but finding connections merely implied by the dots … well, that’s quite a trick.
Strings of all kinds, when jostled, wind up in knots.
Insight may help the development of methods to treat diseases at the nanoscale
A new study suggests that protein knots, a structure whose formation remains a mystery, may have specific functional advantages that depend on the nature of the protein's architecture.
The structure of biomolecules is of great interest for medicine and biology because their shape often determines their function. The use of new tools called free-electron lasers (FELs) allows scientists to obtain high-resolution structural insight into macromolecules.
There's nothing like a new pair of eyeglasses to bring fine details into sharp relief.
Protein design is technique that is increasingly valuable to a variety of fields, from biochemistry to therapeutics to materials engineering.
An international team of researchers has reported a new understanding of a little-known process that happens in virtually every cell of our bodies.
UCLA researchers are now able to peer deep within the world's tiniest structures to create three-dimensional images of individual atoms and their positions.
Drug resistance is a serious problem for cancer patients—over time, a therapy that was once providing some benefit simply stops working. Scientists at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham) recently discovered how cancer cells develop resistance to a drug called MLN4924.
- The act of sweetening by admixture of some saccharine substance.
