Researchers find new signaling systems in human cells

One-third of all approved drugs target the same family of receptors: the G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Now, researchers from the University of Copenhagen, along with two American labs, have expanded the known network ...

How plants measure their carbon dioxide uptake

When water is scarce, plants can close their pores to prevent losing too much water. This allows them to survive even longer periods of drought, but with the majority of pores closed, carbon dioxide uptake is also limited, ...

Discovery could pave the way for disease-resistant rice crops

Researchers have uncovered an unusual protein activity in rice that can be exploited to give crops an edge in the evolutionary arms race against rice blast disease, a major threat to rice production around the world.

Successful T cell engineering with gene scissors

The idea of genetically modifying a patient's own immune cells and deploying them against infections and tumors has been around since the 1980s. But to this day modified T cells are still not as effective as natural T cells ...
