Uncovering a Hidden Protein 'Tail' that Puts the Brakes on Cell Signalling

Images of yeast cells responding to a pheromone stimulus in which the G gamma brake system is intact (left) or genetically turned off (right). In both images, the green color indicates the location of the effector protein that accumulates at the cellular membrane as a result of the stimulus, and was achieved by genetically tagging the effector protein with green fluorescent protein (GFP).

Histones are tiny proteins that bind to DNA and hold information that can help turn on or off individual genes. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have developed a technique that makes it possible to examine how different versions of histones bind to the genome in tens of thousands of individual cells at the same time.
