Pro-Cancer Cytokines Increased by Obesity
News

Studies in mice have demonstrated that obesity-induced inflammation contributes to the risk of colorectal cancer, but evidence in humans has been scarce. A new study shows that two inflammatory proteins in the colon increase in parallel with increasing weight in humans.

Sugar Metabolism Gene Suggests a New Way to Fight Obesity
Sugar Metabolism Gene Suggests a New Way to Fight Obesity
News

Researchers say they have discovered a gene mutation that slows the metabolism of sugar in the gut, giving people who have the mutation a lower risk of diabetes, obesity, heart failure, and even death. The researchers say their finding could provide the basis for drug therapies that could mimic the workings of this gene mutation.

Through the Looking Glass of Single Cell Proteomics
Through the Looking Glass of Single Cell Proteomics
Article

To pick apart the differences between individual cells in complex multicellular organisms, we need to look at cells one-by-one. This article takes a look at how several scientists in North America are using single cell proteomics (SCP) technologies to discern disease pathogenesis and enhance directed stem-cell differentiation.

Understanding the Lytic Cycle – What Are the Steps?
Understanding the Lytic Cycle – What Are the Steps?
Article

Bacteriophage (phage) are viruses that specifically infect bacteria. They have a two-phase lifecycle, residing in a dormant state within the host genome (lysogenic cycle) or hijacking the host cellular machinery for their own replication (lytic cycle). Here we will explore the important steps of the lytic cycle.

The Future is Bright for Single-Cell Proteomics: A Report from HUPO 2018
Article

In recent years the genomes, transcriptomes, and epigenomes of multicellular organisms have been captured in a number of high profile organism-wide atlases. Can proteomics measure up to next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies when it comes to single cell analysis? Here are the highlights from the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) World Congress summarizing the latest developments in the field of single cell biology.
