Researchers identify key complex for ribosome generation

UT Southwestern researchers have identified a four-protein complex that appears to play a key role in generating ribosomes—organelles that serve as protein factories for cells—as well as a surprising part in neurodevelopmental ...

Genetic mechanisms of coral metamorphosis identified

Researchers have identified the gene expression regulation mechanisms that drive the metamorphosis of coral from larvae that float freely in the ocean to sedentary adult reef builder adults.

Synthetic protein quality control system in bacteria

On Feb 5th, Seoul National University, College of Engineering (Dean Kookheon Char) announced that Professor Sang Woo Seo's research team (Dr. Jina Yang and Mr. Yong Hee Han) at the School of Chemical and Biological Engineering ...

New protein regulated by cellular starvation

Researchers at the Center of Genomic Integrity, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), have found out an unexpected role for a protein involved in the DNA repair mechanism. The protein SHPRH not only helps to fix mistakes ...

A tail of gene expression

Messenger molecules that convey instructions from DNA to protein factories for protein synthesis require special molecular tails for their stability and function. Now, a team of scientists from the Institute for Stem Cell ...
