Imaging the ORC Complex Responsible for Genome Replication

The Origin of Replication Complex (ORC) is a structure that binds to DNA and starts the genome duplication process as a cell gets ready to divide. In this model of human ORC, the almost donut-shaped complex clamps down on DNA (the twisted helix shown in red in the central model). The model on the left shows the complex covered, protecting the DNA binding cavity. The model on the right shows the complex open, empty of DNA. Credit: Joshua-Tor lab/CSHL, 2020.

Uncovering a Novel Mechanism for Disposing of Misfolded Proteins

News

About 30 years ago, Dr. Richard Sifers set out on a journey to discover why people with a rare condition known as alpha1-antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency present with high variation in the severity of liver disease. His journey led him to the discovery of fundamental underpinnings of this condition and, unexpectedly, to uncovering a novel cellular mechanism for disposing of misfolded proteins.

In a major breakthrough scientists have potentially identified what makes SARS-CoV-2 highly infectious and able to spread rapidly in human cells. The findings describe how the virus’s ability to infect human cells can be reduced by inhibitors that block a newly discovered interaction between virus and host, demonstrating a potential anti-viral treatment.
