Breakthrough discovery in mitochondrial regulation

Researchers from Osaka University identify a system known as the "GET pathway" as essential for efficient regulation of the numbers of energy-producing mitochondria

Elucidation of proteins controlling the sleep and awake transition

Professor Hiroki Ueda, Assistant Professor Daisuke Tone, Lecturer Koji Ode, and Qianhui Zhang (4th-year graduate student at the time) at the University of Tokyo showed that CaMKII╬▓, a predominant protein kinase expressed ...

How a protein breaks free to cause deadly cancers

Better treatments for some of cancer's deadliest forms could be closer due to a University of California, Irvine-led discovery about how a certain protein is activated in tumor cells. The finding, spearheaded by researchers ...

Researchers elucidate the mechanics of cellular attachment

For cells to assemble into tissues and whole organs, the extracellular matrix (ECM) as well as integrins are required. The ECM forms a kind of extra-cellular protein meshwork; the integrins are surface proteins, which cells ...

Looking through MudPIT for protein interactions

The instructions of life encoded in our genes are decoded through the translation into mRNA, which then instructs the synthesis of proteins. Because mRNA translation is an essential process, it is carefully coordinated through ...
