Latest Transport proteins Stories
Researchers have uncovered the secret recipe to making some petunias such a rare shade of blue.
It's not visible to the naked eye and you can't feel it, but up to 40 per cent of your body's energy goes into supplying the microscopic sodium-potassium pump with the energy it needs.
A Danish-British research team has discovered a turbo switch in the vital calcium pump in our body's cells.
They say it's the little things that count, and that certainly holds true for the channels in transmembrane proteins, which are small enough to allow ions or molecules of a certain size to pass through, while keeping out larger objects.
The degradation of proteins and other macromolecules in cells is vital to survival.
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have discovered new details about how bacteria generate energy to live.
A team of scientists led by University of Connecticut plant biologist Roberto Gaxiola has discovered an overlooked genetic key to generating plants that are more productive, more drought resistant and can grow in soils low in nutrients. Their work is the first to successfully test in cells a 30-year-old hypothesis that explains the movement of a primary growth and development hormone through plants and is expected to prompt biology textbooks to be rewritten.
