Researcher's protein crystal experiment set to fly to ISS
A University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) biology professor's experiment that is set to fly to the International Space Station (ISS) could shed new light on the roles enzymes play in biological processes.
Enzyme 'wrench' could be key to stronger, more effective antibiotics
Builders and factory workers know that getting a job done right requires precision and specialized tools. The same is true when you're building antibiotic compounds at the molecular level. New findings from North Carolina ...
Chemical probe profiles live-cell organelle activity, adds to understanding of lysosome dynamics
A team of scientists from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory synthesized a chemical activity-based probe (ABP) that can provide new information about how living cells function. The new ABP is designed ...
Study shows short peptides can self-assemble into catalysts
Shifting evolution into reverse promises cheaper, greener way to make new drugs
A proof-of-concept experiment has shown that, by shifting evolution into reverse, it may be possible to use 'green chemistry' to make a number of costly synthetic drugs as easily and cheaply as brewing beer.
Research reveals enzyme's helpful secrets
Findings from an international study led by two Queen's researchers could lead to safer food sources and provide better protection for crops.
