Unpacking the Mysteries of Bacterial Cell Cycle Regulation Tuesday, June 23, 2015 Molecular biologists report a surprising new role for one factor, CpdR, an adaptor that helps to regulate selective protein destruction, the main control mechanism of cell cycle progression in bacteria, at specific times.Educating Industry-Ready Nanotechnology Technicians Monday, June 22, 2015 Seattle’s Hub for Industry-Driven Nanotechnology Education has identified dynamic light scattering particle sizing as an essential analytical technique, investing in a Zetasizer Nano from Malvern Instruments.EMBL Scientists Solve Decades-Old Cell Biology Puzzle Saturday, June 20, 2015 Behaviour of clathrin proteins, crucial for endocytosis, is clarified using new imaging techniques.First Drug Discovery Project from £3m Dementia Consortium Friday, June 19, 2015 Funding worth nearly half a million pounds will unite academics at the University of Southampton with drug discovery experts at the medical research charity MRC Technology, to target the immune system in the hunt for new treatments for Alzheimer's disease.All Change for Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins Thursday, June 18, 2015 The discovery of how a group of bacteria can rapidly adapt to changing growth conditions could have implications for future antibiotic development.New Immunoregulation and Biomarker Wednesday, June 17, 2015 Clinicians at LMU have elucidated a mechanism involved in determining the lifespan of antibody-producing cells, and identified a promising new biomarker for monitoring autoimmune diseases. Scientists Map Surface of Immune Cells Tuesday, June 16, 2015 The immune system must constantly adapt to its environment in order to protect a body effectively. The so-called T cells are an important example in this regard. One of their functions is to form the immune system's "memory". New Type of Drug Can Target All Disease-causing Proteins Monday, June 15, 2015 Current drugs block the actions of only about a quarter of known disease-causing proteins, but Yale University researchers have developed a technology capable of not just inhibiting, but destroying every protein it targets.Fragile X Proteins Involved in Proper Neuron Development Monday, June 15, 2015 Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited intellectual disability and the greatest single genetic contributor to autism. Unlocking the mechanisms behind fragile X could make important revelations about the brain.
