A chemical reaction pathway central to plant biology have been adapted to form the backbone of a new process that converts water into hydrogen fuel using energy from the sun.
An international team of researchers has solved the structure and elucidated the function of photosynthetic complex I. This membrane protein complex plays a major role in dynamically rewiring photosynthesis. The team from ...
The exocyst is a protein complex essential for life, that is comprised of eight subunits and is a crucial component in vesicle trafficking.
To trace which proteins are produced and when, researchers say, just follow the ribosome "footprints."
Researchers at the University of Freiburg report a mechanism inside cells that transports proteins to the mitochondria. Their research has now been published in the science journal Cell Reports.
When a cell divides—a process known as mitosis—its chromosomes need to be separated and evenly distributed into the newly created daughter cells. Although this is known to be extremely complicated and to feature a range ...
Biological physicists at Rice University have a new cellular mechanics theory that rings true.
