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 the missing step of an important molecular process

Lysine is an important amino acid that must be supplied in our diets, as our bodies can't produce lysine on their own. Most cereal grains have low levels of lysine, and scientists have worked to breed crops with higher lysine ...

Platform turbo-boosts development of new antibiotics

Harmful bacteria react less and less to common antibiotics. The infections they cause are therefore increasingly deadly. World health therefore urgently needs alternative antibacterial agents. "Our VersaTile platform gives ...

A scientific approach to recreate metabolic evolution in plants

Plants have evolved to produce a variety of compounds that vary from species to species. These compounds play a key role for the survival strategies of plants. Compounds that are bitter and poisonous protect the plants from ...
