Helping cells become better protein factories could improve gene therapies and other treatments

The cells in your body are not all the same. Each of your organs has cells with very different functions. For example, liver cells are top-notch secretors, as their job requires them to make and export many of the proteins ...

Peptide 'fingerprint' enables earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease

Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease are caused by folding errors (misfolding) in proteins or peptides, i.e. by changes in their spatial structure. This is the result of minute deviations ...
