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.Protein Provides Emergency Aid Friday, June 12, 2015 Scientists have characterized a small heat shock protein responsible for embryonic development in the Caenorhabditis elegans nematode.The Perfect Partnership: Research & Industry; Software & Instrumentation. It really starts to come together at ASMS 2015 Thursday, June 11, 2015 Collaboration and knowledge-sharing were evident everywhere: on the bus, in the hallways and in the bars. This article aims to capture this theme and share with you some of the fruits of this coming together of science and industry. Improving HIV Vaccines Thursday, June 11, 2015 Researchers have identified a protein that could improve the body’s immune response to HIV vaccines and prevent transmission of the virus.Researchers Use Nanotubes to Better Understand Diseases Wednesday, June 10, 2015 Researchers in UC’s Department of Cancer Biology are collaborating with material scientists from the University of Houston to create and use nanotubes to capture and understand the regulation of proteins involved in a variety of diseases.Detecting Disease with Intelligent Bacteria Tuesday, June 09, 2015 Researchers from the French Institute of Health and Research and the French National Centre for Scientific Research believe they have assembled the appropriate synthetic biological systems within bacterial hosts to detect disease biomarkers.Blueprinting Cell Membrane Proteins Monday, June 08, 2015 Recent breakthrough will make the blueprinting process faster, easier and cheaper, and should have major implications in the field of drug discovery and development.
