Shining a light on gene regulation

Cancer treatments—from radiation to surgery to chemotherapy—are designed to remove or kill cancerous cells, but healthy cells often become collateral damage in the process. What if you could use lasers to pinpoint the ...

CRISPR used to genetically edit coral, researchers report

Coral reefs on the precipice of collapse may get a conservation boost from the gene-editing tool known as CRISPR, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and their collaborators.

A synthetic cell that produces anti-cancer drugs within a tumor

Technion-Israel Institute of Technology researchers have successfully treated a cancerous tumor using a "nano-factory" – a synthetic cell that produces anti-cancer proteins within the tumor tissue. The research, which was ...

Scientists discover a molecular timer based on stalling ribosomes

A molecular biologist from Lomonosov Moscow State University and international colleagues discovered a special mechanism of protein synthesis regulation that they called a "molecular timer." It controls the number of protein ...

How ribosomes shape the proteome

Cells are crowded with macromolecules, which limits the diffusion of proteins, especially in prokaryotic cells without active transport in the cytoplasm. While investigating the relationship between crowding, ionic strength ...

Nanoscale platform aims to control protein levels

A nanoscale antibody first found in camels combined with a protein-degrading molecule is an effective new platform to control protein levels in cells, according to Rice University scientists. The technique could aid fundamental ...
