Cancer-linked enzyme mechanism newly characterized in study

A new study led by scientists at IUPUI and Indiana University Bloomington is the first to describe a biochemical mechanism that increases the activity of a molecule whose presence is observed in many types of cancer.

Finding a handle to bag the right proteins

Purifying specific protein molecules from complex mixtures will become easier with a simpler way to detect a molecular tag commonly used as a handle to grab the proteins.

Poison control: Chasing the antidote

Pick your poison. It can be deadly for good reasons such as protecting crops from harmful insects or fighting parasite infection as medicine—or for evil as a weapon for bioterrorism. Or, in extremely diluted amounts, it ...

New tools to study bioactive lipids

NAEs are bioactive lipid molecules that appear to play roles in energy balance, inflammation, stress responses and addiction. How NAE levels are regulated and their precise contributions to biological processes remain poorly ...
