Light Signals from Living Cells Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.Cellular 'Relief Valve' A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.Genomic Signature Shared by Five Types of Cancer National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer. Protein Protects Against Flu in Mice The engineered molecule doesn’t provoke inflammation and may hail a new class of antivirals.Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives. Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
Natural Protein Points to New Inflammation Treatment Findings may offer insight to effective treatments for inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and multiple sclerosis.Natural Protein Points to New Inflammation Treatment Findings may offer insight to effective treatments for inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and multiple sclerosis.Enzyme Links Age-Related Inflammation, Cancer Researchers have shown that an enzyme key to regulating gene expression -- and also an oncogene when mutated -- is critical for the expression of numerous inflammatory compounds that have been implicated in age-related increases in cancer and tissue degeneration. New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
A New Proteomics Workflow for the Identification of PTMs (Post Translational Modifications) Quantitative proteomics is an essential tool in molecular biology and biomedical sciences. SILAC is a commonly used workflow in which proteins are labelled with stable isotopes, digested into peptides and separated by chromatography for detection in a mass spectrometer.
